So, I have a wood shed I use as my tack room for my horse stuff. I love the tack room but in this California weather it turns into a hot box during the summer.
I would like to put some kind of vents in it but I really don't want to install anything on the roof. I'm just a house wife and wouldn't have a clue how to cut through the shingles and so on.
So, I was thinking about a side vent or even a solar vent. I checked into solar vent's and though they sound great, there way to pricey for just a little shed.
I did find solar boat vents and they seem to be easy to install. But, the reviews on them being used for shed vents are not as great as I had hoped. Some people say they work, some say there not worth the money and don't circulate the air enough.
Here's pictures of my shed:
I installed a solar light if your wondering what the panel is for.
The roof slops up and traps the heat. This would be nice in the winter but very stuffy and hot right now.
Currently I keep the door and windows wide open all the time (24/7) for ventilation, not a good thing when it comes to letting dust in or for locking up the tack room.
So what kind of ventilation would you install on this shed? How hard would it be for me to install it and what tools would I need to get the job done?
There are also two sky lights on the roof I would have to work around if I did want to install on the roof. Here's a picture when they were delivering it.
Thanks in advance for your help If I could install some kind of vent that I could close for winter that would be great, kinda like the one on my horse trailer that you turn the handle and it closes the lid....hmm...well, I don't know. Any ideas?
