Secret Basement Grow
Within the next year after funds are collected me and some friends have gone ahead and agreed to do a secret underground grow room. Our goal is about 10 to 15 pounds per month. My question is how big would the basement need to be overall with a one veg room, two flower rooms, supply room, and prep and drying room. Sounds crazy but my fav motto is if you just put your mind to it nothing is impossible. Budget is around 40 to 50 grand. the room will be located under a garage with hydraulic lift to a smaller room with vault door access to grow room.
dude not to be a downer but you are spending 40 grand and you are not educated in marijuana enough to know how big this room should be and why would you post is on the internet..... cops are too lazy to bust people growing a few plants but a secret basement producing 10-15 pounds a month plus how is the electricity not gonna look suspicious if you do this grow make sure you use gas generators so the electricity company doesnt notice. im not a genius but this smells bad. but if you pull it off i will take back everything I said. a better idea would be to buy a plot of land but make sure there are no choppers that search in the fall and just grow the pot outside and make sure no little shits steal them
This sounds like more of a james bond setup then anything else. If you plan to have a large basement grow with a 40-50 thousnad dollar spending limit, turning out 10-15 lbs per month...then good luck. Id say youd need two 20ft by 10ft grow rooms. 10ft 10ft drying room, 20ft by 20ft veg room. Defaintely invest in generators, climate control(dehumidifier, ventilation systems with filters to filter the smell). A large grow like this is defaintely not something you would want to tell anyone about, whether on here or to your friends. All it takes is for the wrong person to find out and your you to be federally fucked in the ass.
Having said that, good luck and be careful!
you are going to need a large house, at least 2000 ft^2 plus the basement, to support an area that size and it would need heavy modification to control heat/humidity/critters. difficult and expensive, yes. impossible, no.
i hate to sound like a ass but this aint even the right move to make at this time.
You need to read n learn.
Start smaller then go up to the big grows.
As tyler said it only takes one person to get you tore off.
Group Ops like this always end badly after time.
Either ya girl snitches on u.
Boy gets tore off n snitches on whole OP.
Vault door won't keep police out if found out about.
this is y u would need gas generators like someone said.
Cause you'd be pullin shitload of power.
Fast cake is cake you cant spend.
If you do jump all in be easy is all i can say, n let the pple u doin dirt with be the only ones that know anything about it.
Well first off I just wanna say that i love how you guys are willing to speak the truth about what could wrong.misprint in the first thread I meant 8-12 to pounds per month. As for being not educated in growing I have lived off this forum for a couple years pre-18 till now. So I have a vast knowledge about growing but certain aspects right now have me at home for the next year. Power issue is not really a problem likes it sounds. The counter move to this will be a solar power system mostly a 4kw system as the flower rooms will be staggered with eathier 4 0r 6 1000w hps lights. so I wont have any big power surges for only 12 hours a day. We do have a 3 acre property that a friend has inherited through a love one. As for the question about room sizes i onl ask becuase i know you can fit a grow in anz size room if needed just wanted a few figures thrown around to see what you guys thought. No one will know where the room will be except for me and deals will go through a couple of trusted friends who still wont know where the room is. A flase garage with the kind of lights will be added to the property so that a big transfromer can be installed and power company will know that large power consumptions from this property will be because of this garage. Feds wont find room through therm image becuase the room will have a 2 foot concrete roof with a reg car garage on top of it.
I do not mean to rain on the parade but.....
15 FUCKING POUNDS ARE YOU NUTS!
How much electricity do you plan on using......Do you even know anything about growing?
This guy will be arrested in the fucking vegging stage from having possession of plants.

Its funny to me you think this will cost 60grand, If you sold the property you couldn't come anywhere near the cash you would need. And how about this, you think that 18 year old kids that cant move out of the rents are buying 100s of thousands of dollars in concrete, hydraulics and chemical equipment. (Hello homeland security)
I LOOOOOVE how your gonna use solar power. Explain that one to me again.
This project sounds like it would be a half million easy, its just not that cheap to build and off the grid underground growbunker. This is the reason that you never see off the off the grid underground growbunkers around the neighborhood, or that you ever here of 18 year olds with NO GROWING OR CONSTRUCTION OR INVESTMENT OR BUISNESS experience buiding off the grid underground growbunkers.
I suggest a greenhouse. Try that first please.
Edit: How you gonna move that weight without getting killed smartass?

i was reading a thread on a uk forum yesterday and this guy was building a growroom by digging a huge hole in his garden shuttering the hole out with concrete walls, looks really good! it was 30ft by 20ft by 11ft tall, hes having to re-route all the services to and from the house, gas elec drains etc. the guy runs a building company and hes got his staff building it! subscribed to that thread!
i dont think you realize how expensive solar power is dude. Just setting up your solar system alone would instantly drain all your funds and leave you with nothing else...
