I was going to draw a crude diagram but the forum seems to require that images be hosted on another site and I don't have anything setup for hosting ATM. I'd be glad to show you what we've got so far. I found out that they're actually building the wall for the bar tomorrow so that will give a better picture as well.

All the info I have seen has pointed to a CFM calculation of 1 CFM for every 100 BTUs. I think this mostly applies to residential installations and may not be quite as applicable in the range of BTUs you may be hitting.

Back up two posts I stated "use a CO detector in the room", I believe I had it covered about the air quality and safety for that room plus the big roof vent fan.

I have a multi gas detector in storage that I used when installing electrical power and lighting in gold mine shafts some years back.
They would go off with lights and buzzers with readings on a LCD window if you exhaled near the probe. We had to carry a oxygen generating mask in a stainless container like a stainless WWII water canteen. It would blister your lips if used due to the heat from the chemical reaction making oxygen.

I have a friend that is a superintendent for a home builder and he is kind of managing the project for me. He found someone to answer that particular question for us. I can't wait to get this thing built out. I'm going to save a lot of time on brew day once it's finished. I'm trying to decide on a sink right now. I've decided that I don't want a 3 compartment commercial sink because it takes up so much space I don't think I'll have the need to wash, rinse, sanitize because I'm not going through a lot of glasses. I was thinking of getting a single large sink that my kettle could fit in so I could put it in an ice bath when cooling and have a convenient place to wash it as well. That or a 2 compartment sink that it couldn't fit in but I could wash and fill in one and keep sanitizer in the other.

What do you guys think would be better?

Here are some before images. I'll post some current condition pics in a bit.

This image shows the sliding glass doors. The room was an add on by previous owners. Three walls were sliding glass doors end to end. The ones behind the hot tub there have been removed and the wall built but not surfaced.

Here's a rough sketch of the plan so far. Don't laugh at my 2nd grade art skills.
