Defenetly try and get some sort of return in the area, maybe in the bedroom. Whatever you have going out has to find its way back otherwise you get a positive pressure and air flow will not circulate.

just curious bud... what do you plan to do on the outside? Leave a flush, smooth wall w/T1-11 or do you plan to brick it over?

We are taking the door down from the kitchen into the new hallway and just a pocket door into the new utility room. I was hoping if the pocket door was only closed when guest are around we should be good with circulation.

We have two returns in the house already.

Going to be white vinyl siding indented 2" in from the brick.



Was not able to get started on this because we spent most of the weekend in the hospital with some difficulties. But all is better now all three girls are doing great. Hopefully this weekend I will make it out there.

Technically, all rooms that have a push should also have a pull(aside from bathrooms and kitchens to save the others in the house from farts and garlic smells), but nobody does this(cost). Builders/installers instead place a huge return to compensate for many smaller ducts.

You very likely don't have one in your bedroom and have never suffered because of it. If the room is well insulated and the door is open most of the time, it will circulate well enough to allow for proper temps.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

we have an addition built onto our double wide that's my office. I've been running an EdenPURE heater in here for a few years now because of the lack of pre-plumbed heating.
It's not perfectly ideal but it's a really safe unit and heats the small space pretty well. In your case, I mention it because it's exceptionally safe to the touch for little ones.

Thanks to everyones advice here things went pretty well. It has been a very slow project but getting.

Sleeves and Lag bolts through concrete blocks, Construction adhesive on bottom of block to foundation and top to the Flashing then placed treated 2x4, and framed is up.











Was going to go without a window but decided to go ahead and put a window in. Framed it out, used aluminum padding and great stuff to seal it up.







I have block going in that center location where the gap is. Construction adhesive and seal it up well.

Still need to put the siding up and run my outlet before drywall.




While I'm here little by little I have been working on some of the interior framing as well.

This thing was a life saver!!



That plus adhesive made mounting the floor studs a breeze



Relocated the wiring and vent for the dryer. framed out walls, one door, and one pocket door.





not compleley done but getting there.

Very cool. Also if you want to put stone brick mix, most of the new construction homes have limestone left over on site that they pay to dispose of. Talk with the GC of some subdivisions and they will most likely give them to you. Not sure if you can use it on that project and still look good but good info to know.
