Default Mother of fermentation chamber question

I just built my fermentation chamber



I want to go out today and get the wood for the base and and the ice chambers. I know the demensions for those but I need to know what people use for the warm air return which is usually in the back right.

Thanks!

Update!

I added the wood fits great! I just used an 22x8 for the hot air return. I will finish it up soon by adding spray foam in some of the cracks then it will be good to go!

cool! have you test-fitted the carboys/buckets yet?

My only critique is that I don't see supports for the "shelf" on the right(and probably left, but I can't see it from the angle) and that would make me wonder if it's sturdy enough to handle about 100+ lbs (if using two glass carboys; ~70-80 if buckets/BBs) of weight. Just a thought! Looks good! building one too!

Thanks for the advice! I will have to add some supports to the left and right side
