New Flower Box, Built it for under $200
Hey guys. Here's my new pride. I decided to build a 5'T x 3'W x 2'D box, cuz my 30"T x 18"w x 24"d box wasn't big enough.
Just waiting on the Hood/CFL to get here.
I know you guys probably gunna knock the CFL, however I was using like 32w full of flouro + led for my veg, which will get the old 30" box with the 125w horticultural CFL and the 200W from that box is going into this one.
The storage tote veg box hasn't really gotten the plants beyond 4-6" until they went into flower, so I decided 4x the CFL power for veg should give me taller plants to start from when they go into flower.
I've seen some 200w CFL grows that are pretty nice, and they look like what I need so here's the pics (Some are from construction):
BTW: Checked for leaks, the door leaks a tiny bit, not quite as much as the supercloset does, and I haven't had any problems yet. Also the reason for the specific size: It took only 2 sheets of 4x8 plywood to construct with these dimensions, and I didn't want to spend a whole lot more.
The frame is 2x2 fir whatever it's called. 3x @ $2/ea
1x2 for door frame / hangar 4x @ $1/ea
I got some super thin plywood for the shell. 2x @ about $11/ea
Used caulk for all the corners/edges. 2x @ $4/ea
Hinges 2pks @ $2/ea
Used half off $ Latex white semi-gloss primer (1 can, and there's still like 1/4 can left) 8.50
Castor wheels 4x @ 2.50/ea
about $10 worth of screws
2x rope ratchet, amazon special ~$11
Weather stripping, about $2
Sewage pipe fittings for intake ~$8
20' cord ~$10
3-way fitting ~$2
200w CFL/Hood (Used on Amazon) ~$50 (It's one of the Hydrofarm FLC0125D systems basically :http://hydrofarm.com/product.php?itemid=8399 )
6" Duct Fan with cord ~$30
Probably a little more on my reciepts due to tax and all, but it's pretty close.
And Yea, the carbon filter was borrowed from the smaller box because i'm not currently using it.
nice bro make me want to go make one
k, sorry for the dupes and whatnot, i posted from my android tablet and the image stuff aint very friendly with android
however... so the hood and light arrived and thankfully both work. i cant believe how blue my veg box looks with it. the temp is reading around or below 85f so im very happy.
