When we bought our house (late 60's brick and tile) the previous owners had already partially converted the basement and garage to a large open-plan rumpus.

Currently is is a mixed workshop/store/laundry/gym with all the kit that would entail.

What was the garage window and back door is still there - original wood frames and showing their age a bit! The main garage door has been replaced with a cheapish slider. It is a big open space - think two decent sized single garages side by side.

We do have a dehumidifier which works quite well, but would prefer a cheaper "always on" solution to keep the must, slight damp and collected odor of all the stored paint, garden stuff and miscellaneous at bay.

Eventually (money permitting) we are going to put in internal stairs to the main house and do the whole thing up. UNtil then I was looking for an effective vent solution.

Any ideas?

could check these out: http://joinerydev.co.nz/easy-air-ventilation/ basically a passive vent you can fit to existing windows

we have something like this in our spare room and despite being closed most of the time it stays fresh (closed as in the room, not the vent, we leave it open)
