What Big Fans You Have

It was a productive week for D-Node. We cut a hole through the ceiling and roof, built a curb (aka frame), and successfully installed the massive 5-ft diameter exhaust fan. It was quite impressive to watch the SkyTrak lift the fan and gently place it on the roof. It was even more exciting when I got to drive the SkyTrak and crush a wooden pallet. The clean-up crew needed it smashed so they could easily haul it away. That's the truth, I swear.  

The next step is to cut holes in the outer wall and insert three intake fans. These smaller fans will draw outside air into the space and create the circulation we need to pull the hot air up and out of the room. This process requires special saw blades that can cut through the thick walls of the building, which means we hired a professional cement company to help us out. Once these intake fans are placed, we can activate the new ventilation system. 

We hope the photo demonstrates the magnitude of the project underway. There are a lot of moving parts and different contractors involved. When it comes to any construction venture of this scale, patience is the best attitude. Another update will follow soon... Please let us know if you have any questions.
