Some finishing touches on the fan intake

I found this square drain that can hold a 4" tube pretty snug:

Then I cut out the grate and the inner ring to maximize air flow: 

Then I caulked the edge and screwed to my fan housing, then attached the intake tube and ran the tube up to the ceiling where the hottest air is.

I am being careful to block off the ends of the tube so no critters get in there and make nests!  I wouldn't want to have to get a snake to clean them out, so here is my 1/2" mesh end cap.
