Evening fine OG folks. This will be our new build and legal medical grow spot.( Blondy and I). 99% of the material in the build is recycled. Wood. plastic, screws, electrical, paint, ballasts soil and pots.
I was raised by my grandparents who lived through the great depression WWII and dust bowl. Spent my youth working on a farm every summer from 8 years old to 20. So I tend to save and pick up various things I think I can use. I'll dumpster dive, stop and ask, and my fave spot is the transfer station. Pulled a many pickup loads of good stuff out of there. Generators, lawnmowers, welders. power washers, weed eaters ect. ect..I'm a mechanic and welder. If it can be fixed I can fix it.
On with the room.
The room is 7' x 7' x7.5' tall.
This was the laundry room in this old house. The new laundry room is now the next room over. That was a bathroom in the past. I moved the water that was a bath tubs water for the wash machine and put down a liner. Got tired of the machine puking water out from time to time. The liner has a drain that was the tubs drain.
The grow room has the same liner. This liner is what the oilfield uses to line their saltwater/oil tanks/ponds. It will last in the sun for a 100 years. So they say. Picked up the piece from the dump.
Power for the room is 30amp 220v from where the dryer was hooked up. There is also two outlets on separate 15amp breaker for fans. Timer was picked up from the oilfield when they went digital and tossed the old ones. The plugs where from counters that came from a store when they remodled. I was asked to haul them off and did so gladly. Pulled 20 plugs off them. All are 15amp plugs.
Dinner break. I made some man sized rolls.
Until I get the 1000w bulb I put together a 400w MH in some light cans that came from a building that was demolished 10 years ago. Had six but after moving a few times. I'm down to 3. They work and that's what counts in my book. There is a fart fan for cooling in the top.
Hung it up and fired it up. The room is now ready for some plants. From looking at this picture. I need to put a dimpled reflector in it to cut down on the hot spots. Have some, some where out in the spare parts pile.
This is the veg area for now. Was given a small tent I'll use also. T5's with 6500k bulbs. Another trash find. Do need some new bulbs.
One last picture of the 2'x2.5' flower box running a 400w hps.
Once I get the vegging plants up potted I'll post their pictures.
Thanks for watching. Allot more to come.
