DIY Studio:
Part 2 - Air Vents & Air Returns

Here's a little diagram that shows the type of box I built for both the vent and the air return. The yellow stuff represents old socks (tip: wash first!). I only managed three intersecting angles within my boxes but the more you can get, the better. If you're actually making the vent coming in, you may also be able to recess the entire contraption into the ceiling or preferably high up into the wall (mine is jutting down from the ceiling and had to be drywalled - not easy). Note: Regarding the air flow arrow in the diagram, the air flow for the cold air return would actually be opposite as it would also be trying to leave the room.

Next up... lighting.
