Just putting this out there because I've been mulling it over and I
actually haven't come up with a solution.  And since I'm sure that
there's plenty of folks on-list who have a solution to spout about...

It occurs to me that we're building in ducts and ventilation for the
darkroom and bathroom and that there are a few activities that require
ventilation but don't fit will in either of those rooms.  The rest of
noisebridge is really badly ventilated, and that kind of makes sense
given our heat retention problem.  But have you ever been in the space
when someone paints something? And I'm planning to experiment with
latex glue...

I think that we've got me covered for all of the other chemical play I
can think of--the darkroom will probably be our de facto chem lab.
And any cleaning product related fumes would obviously be fine in the
bathroom, but I can't really think of a good place to spray paint or
do something with glue.  Is there any reasonable workspace for
shop-like activities that could be ventilated? Maybe once the kitchen
is all finished off we could set something up next to the windows
below the DJ booth where the temp-kitchen is.  That wouldn't be so
great for classroom Church potentially.

And I'm sure this would revive the fantasy anyway so I might as well
mention that roofing and ventilating the shop would really take care
of this nicely.  Too bad the shop isn't located in Church. Ooopsies.
I'm sure there are other reasons for that, right?  Anyway. Too late
now.

So. Ideas?
