It sounds like you put the fan in yourself? Is it a fan that runs 100% of the time? Is it basically just cutting PVC pipe & inserting the fan unit, and plugging it in?

Any recollection of what fan you used?
Hey kmhvball,
I installed the fan myself. I used a Fantech HP2190. It runs 100% of the time. It is pretty easy to install. Just cut the pipe to fit the fan, insert the fan unit and plug it in. You may need to reduce the connection from the fan to the pipe. I needed 2 4" to 3" flexible reducers to install on my existing pipe. I would also recommend installing a manometer so you will have a visual indicator that the fan is running. Mine is installed in the basement so I can see it whenever I need to. Good luck!

Tis the season for more basement work so it's back to drywalling. Here are some pics of the progress over the past few weeks. The bathroom and wine cellar are done and I am just about finished with the media closet under the stairs (don't have pictures of that yet).

Pics of the wine cellar insulation prior to drywalling



The wine cellar drywalled



Bathroom drywalled




The "Halloween Garage"
Had some fun for halloween and setup my garage as a rear projection theater. It was a big hit!!

The screen


The projector/stereo/laptop


The end result as it appeared in the driveway as people were walking up:

Back in action and milestone hit: All drywall in left half of basement hung. Includes wine cellar, bathroom, media closet and gym. Some of the most recent pics:

Media closet (aka under stairs):


The cut out is where the rack will go and the equipment will face out into the theater



Gym back wall insulated and drywalled




Gym side wall insulated and drywalled


Gym area with all drywall hung. I am going to either hang a large picture or some gym style mirrors to hide the breaker box and coax hub.




Supply vent added to wall between gym and workshop/utility room


Practiced some taping/mudding/sanding. I much prefer doing this than hanging the drywall itself. This was a good wall to practice on. It had a butt and a factory joint. It came out real good when doing the "light test"



Up next is drywalling the theater room. Before I start on that though I am going to run 4 more conduits in the ceiling for speakers for Dolby Atmos. See, I knew I was going slow for a reason. I needed to wait for the next big thing



Thanks for looking! Hope to updated more frequently now that I am moving again on all of this.
