HELP! cold air return - furnance question
posted Nov 19, 2013 02:49 PM

I have two story house basement and main floor, I have a closed up wall that I knocked a hole in to see how much space there was. the in closed area is 3ftx6ft, and only 1ftx2ft hole in floor is being used coming from my furnace above this empty room in attic is cold air return.the whole room is empty wasted space. I want to know if I can use 3ftx3ft to make closet.I want to build a wall in the center to completely close it off from the space where the hole is, there will be a wall from floor to ceiling drywall tape and mud it shut.
Thanks Linda
