Vent Framing

The airreturn vent on the new furnance ducting was a bit of a puzzle. At first we planned on just leaving it exposed. It is a basement, and really what would it hurt to have the air return exposed. The more we thought about it the more I wanted to cover it up. So josh and I headed to home depot and basically took the lego approach to the problem. With a rough idea of how we'd handle this, we just loaded up with 2x2s, 2x1s and a box of brackets.
