Well Larry, I just finished making my own 7x12 cold turning room. The shop gets up to about 110 degrees by the after noon but now I can turn in 71 degree comfort. Thanks again for the idea my friend. I sold some storm braces to finance it. Some day I may post a few pic's but for now I can start turning again.

I showed my wife the cold room and mentioned that I could probably build something like that in the garage, and she asks if I considered moving the lathe into the house, since we don't really use the spare bedroom.  I was struck dumb.

Someone that did that here had major problems with the fine dust throughout the house and A/C.

Hmm.  I wasn't really considering it, but that's a good point.  I would have to have good dust collection vented to outside, and keep the door closed.  Might even need weatherstripping.  I could let the air run because positive pressure should keep stuff out of the vents.

The problem would be return air for your house AC system.  I also considered the spare bedroom possibility but could not figure out the problem.  I think you have to shut off the central air and go with a window unit and vent the dust collection outside.  The biggest hurdle for me was LOML i didn't think I could vent her wrath from me.

If there were return vents in each room that makes sense, but I have a large return vent in the main hallway.  I can't have window unit due to HOA rules, but I could open the window and vent to the outside while I'm turning if no one notices.  I would extend my backyard fence so that window wasn't visible from the street in that case. 

I'm not planning on using the spare room anyway; this is just a thought experiment.

I have yet to acquire the funds for the dust collection I will need to begin finishing in my cold room. I intend to get the trend pro face shield and a HF-2hp dust collection unit with all the necessary hoses and attachments for proper dust collection. Until then I have an abundance of fresh wood for rough turning. I will just rough turn for the next few months in cool conditions. I will not try any sanding in there until I have the proper dust collection. But boy what a joy to turn in a cool room for the first time since becoming a willing and happy victum to the vortex.
