Nice. What are your air ideas? Or will there be no air movement in the booth?

1x2 wood stripping? I assume it will have a plastice sheet exterior? I could see this inside a larger structure like a barn but wouldn't this be a little too light duty to withstand anything but the lightest of breezes. I too am wondering about air handling.

I applaud the exhuberance, but like tharbert said, the lightest of breezes could send that into the neighbors yard.
