  2. Alright folks, after some advice - Im converting my loft into storage space and my roof has 2 pairs of strut/trusses about 5 feet from each end of attic. Can I remove these and replace with suitable bracing (what ever that maybe) as they both have a plank bolted vertically right in the middle of the walk through space. heres a photo of the offending trusses, the one at the far end can stay, Im planning on boxing that end in and making a grow room/ tent enclosure out of it (cold water tank in there as well and I may have tent on top of that but need to measure up, the plans are very "fluid" currently, making it up as I go!
  3. hi all, Ive been having a smoke and pondering about the effects of thermal mass in a grow enclosure (as you do!) wondering if anybody used thermal mass in their design set up, what did you use and did it help with your temps? I was thinking of covering the floor of my tent (its only a tiddler 60x60) in block pavers on a slab of insulation - theory being, this would absorb the heat when lights on and slowly release this stored heat at lights off.
  4. First time on here and first time grower so I am looking to have a small set up in my garden shed with a 4x4 tent inside , I am looking to insulate the shed either with 25mm polystyrene or thermawrap to help maintain ambient temperatures. Planning to do 4 plants and was looking at the Mars hydro ts3000 which outputs 600w , using soil , my main concern will be the intake air temperature as during night temps can go to zero . Any ideas or Advice would be appreciated

  6. evening everyone. so my grow is coming to an end and I'm looking to change my setup. I'm currently running inside a tent in a shipping container but would like to get some more room to maximise my yields. I've got another 20ft shipping container coming next week to have as my grow space as the one its currently in the missus isn't to happy about being so close to the house. going to try and detail the build on here for you all to see how it going and give any pointers along the was as I'm still fairly new. so the container im going to section off into 2 sections. the main grow room will be 10ft Long and 8ft wide and tall. I'm having it spray insulated to try help temp and hide and heat coming out in the winter. the 2nd half will have my drying tent, prop for seedlings and a wood burning stove to help with the heating when its cold. it will also be my trim area and a bit of a man cave. I'm running my 35L alien rdwc 8 pot system and plan to have 4 x 600w air-cooled hps lights so 2 plants per light. looking at extraction I want something capable of around 2500m2 that will work with my sms pro controllers. anyone have any recommendations? I was planning on lining the walls with orca film but do you think i would get away just painting the walls with white gloss for now. anything that you guys can think of that you use and wouldn't grow without? I'm trying to put a fair bit of planning into it so i can get everything perfect and really maximise my yields. cheers guys will be interesting to see your different ideas and before anyone says no shipping containers aint great to burry (would love to but not gonna happen now maybe one day)
  7. Hi So I have done 3 grows now in my 1.2x1.2x2.0 tebt all gone well except the last due to cold conditions So now here the new plan O want to split my garage in half And then build seprate rooms for all my needs I will be having a basic prep and bonsia mother room A hallway through the garage with a bit of space for storage and hydro tanks My biggest question is this Cost wise keeps me strictly at CLS studwork 38x63mm My biggest question is this I am planning on using 100mm knauf insulation and any hardboard/MDF for the floor base to all rooms What insulation shall I use in the walls would 200m knauf be effeiciy in notice reduction ? Also I have very think hard board at my abudunace but reducing noise is a must so would plaster board be better Insulation and boarding for walls and ceiling in the main flower room is my neccesicty so all other rooms will be same Flowering and mother rooms will have the silver insulation added throught after main walls are built After a good kip tonight I will update with photos of the up coming project and update with questions I would love help with

    Mounted Drivers outside the room so could manage any issues with ease. Should have gone for the 'B' version of the driver with an external potentiometer. but on the 'A's" you can control the wattage and current separately.
  10. Hi. I am trying to design my own grow room. Right now the dimensions are going to be either: 50 cm (width) x 75 cm or 90 cm (length). I have ordered the wood and everything but now I'm starting to wonder if 50 cm is big enough? This is my first grow so i don't know what the minimum dimensions should be. The reason why the grow room is only 50 cm (width) is because i live in a small apartment and i want to keep it stealthy. Do you guys think it will make a positive difference, if i made the grow room bigger? (60 cm width instead). I can't make it bigger than 60 cm though Stiggy
  11. Hi everyone, I need a little advice if possible. Ok first of all abit of back story, I have just inherited a half cellar i think something like 3m x 2.5m squared but with only 1.5m height so im really going to have to keep an eye on the stretch. Now the problem i have is technically the cellar runs the whole length of the house but half of it has been walled off. Behind this walled section appears to be nothing but rubble. Now that side supposedly does have some air bricks running around one side of the cellar and on the back wall which leads to the garden. My question is can i just vent into the side of the cellar that is rubble filled and will that be enough for the hot air to just dissipate and also give me free underfloor heating in the room above or will it just not work. My main problem is i don't have any chimney stacks to use in this house so old tricks wont work. Thanks

We have put together an itinerary of the equipment we have gone for and think is necessary to get everything setup. This is now our final step before committing and spending alot of money on this, we would appreciate any feedback and advice from you guys, what do you think of the list? have we forgotten anything? would you change anything? reasons for changing any equipment?

  15. Hi all, im new to the forum and excited to be here, a friend @maverick40band I are looking to start up a personal grow and are looking for some good advice/ information, we are fed up with unreliable, poor quality or overpriced products out there and would like to have a clean tasty reliable source of our own. At the moment we are completely undecided on the best way to set up our tent. Hydroponics or soil grow? Potsizes? Light types? Fan/ extractor sizes? Nutrients? We are looking at a 1.2 x 1.2 x 2.4 tent and would like to grow 8 plants, is this tent adequate for the quantity and if so what equipment is needed to setup the tent to achieve a perfect grow environment? We do have some ideas of our own but would like some fresh ideas from experienced growers to compare notes and to see if we are on the right lines. I won't tell you what we have in mind as i feel we will benefit more from the knowledge and experience of this forum. Any advice on the equipment you would recommend, what and where to buy from, things often not thought about when setting up, recommendations on soil or hydroponics (pros and cons), or just any information you would like to share would be greatly appreciated. We are fairly new to this, we have a couple of 1-2 plant grows under our belts, so we are looking for as much knowledge as possible. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I look forward to hearing from you all.

    This area will be for the veg room. Right hand wall will become the back wall. Back wall you see will become the left wall. Stud frame top, bottom of your left & stud frame to the front of your view. If enuff space allows me I will have door to ur front facing, if not it will be to the left facing with one side boarded up.
  21. Bottom left in this picture linked, on the outside of the property, looks like some kind of vent, I don't know what it is and whether I can make use of it by drilling a 5" hole from the inside to meet it, then tucking the exhaust through the hole in the wall from the inside of the property so that the end of the exhaust is nestled right up against the inside of the vent. Is this plan possible with this vent looking cover? Please advise

  23. Hi, just wondering - wanted to start some seeds off in the greenhouse and them put them into the grow room. Reason being the grow room's not ready yet, and just wanted to get cracking. Are there any problems/constraints with doing this? Was looking at putting the plants under 18/6 in the grow room, just because this seems to be the general period that people use to veg with. My only thought is that possibly you might stress the plants when you move them from natural light, into your artificial grow room. What do people think? Thanks.
