My brother and Dad are in this weekend for a family wedding. Here's a pic from last night. Good times!

Win or lose, we booze.

So this part closes the project with an ultimate success. Congrats...

Stunning project, your attention to detail is impressive, thanks for taking the time to share in such detail and answering all the questions.
I am at the planning phase of a similar Cigar Lounge build and have learned allot from your project.
I have read all the posts and have a few specific question about the Cigar Room ventilation.... since you achieved zero odor/smoke escape which is essential in my build also.

You have two separate ceiling vent locations in the room which are connected in line to a Fantech Model: FKD 8XL fan which pulls smoke out of the room.

1. How do you supply make up air into the room?
2. If you have a vent supplying makeup air from outside:
- Do you rely on negative pressure in the room to suck fresh air into the room, or do you use a fan to push the fresh air into the room (I have seen the fan approach in other builds).
- How do you heat/cool the make up air? Heat Recovery Ventilator or Inline Duct Heater... etc?
- Does the makeup return air vent into the room in the ceiling or at the floor?

3. How do you heat/cool the room? I notice a 3rd vent in the ceiling is that a house HVAC?

Would it be possible to get or post a larger version of the architectural drawing where the dimensions are clearer.
Thanks Again.

That is the best test of good ventilation. One of the lounges I go to has great ventilation and my wife will tell me she can hardly tell.

Fantastic venue!

But I almost wish you weren’t finished.This was one great build tread. I miss the progress posts. Was like getting updates on Thor Heyerdahl in his Kon Tiki or Apollo 11 nearing the moon. How’s the ventilation working?

Edit. I see it’s working perfectly!

HA! Yeah...I miss posting myself. The ventilation is still working great. I'm using the room 2-3 times a week (sometimes more). LOVE, LOVE it! Thanks for commenting and checking in!

All I can say is "WOW!" There is a lot to read on this thread, but I'm trying to nail down the ventilation as I am embarking on a similar project. My basement is already finished, bar included; I'm looking at converting the bedroom in the basement to my very own cigar room. For ventilation/air handling, am I correct to understand that you have the vents in the ceiling ran by the Fantech 8xl vent fan, RabbitAir air purifier, and the ozone generator? Am i missing anything? I plan on ventilating my room in a similar manner, I already have an air purifier (Austin Air Healthmate Plus), and now plan on the ozone generator thanks to this thread. I too cannot have any cigar smell escaping, as my wife would immediately shut it down.....lol!!

Great questions. Just sent you a PM so you can reach out to me directly. I'm happy to help out. Good luck with your project!
