That would probably work very nicely, but I'd like to start out as simple as possible for now.

Any chance of getting some insulation on that attic door?
Yeah, thats what I think I'm going to do. No filter for now. Its pretty clean up there so we'll wait to see if its a problem.

There is insulation above the door when its all closed up.
