    i like it what kind of ac do you plan on running?

    Wolfhound Active Member

    I have a frigidare 6500 btu that recirculates the room air. I put it up at roof level so I can vent the back of it out thru the roof without ducting, just box in the back & 8 inch or so opening to attic. Next I have fresh air from attic or house, depending on temps, for both the reflectors & passive grow room fresh air intake. I have exhaust fans (8 inch Valuline centrifugal 745 cfms) for both lights & room exhaust to be mounted in attic.
    At this point I am toying with running a down & dirty Co2 setup, sealed room.
    I have two Quantum ballast & xxxlmagnum (8 inch) air cooled reflectors for 600 HPS flowering setup. Also hqave the TITAN 4 gal ebb/flo setup, 12 bucket(AZ legal grow).

    Anyone comment or please help with suggestions for fine tuning setup !
    Thanx to all who stop by:peace:

    Good luck with this! I have similar space and am looking forward to hearing about how it goes. There are so many tough decisions such as what size and how many lights, proper ventilation, security, etc. My seedlings are doing well so I better get started!

    Thanx ! Better get started is an understatement ! I put the walls up etc in two days and have spent the last weeks + trying to make sure design will work before moving further. General answers are easy but specifics are hard to come by. I have company this week so no work for a while (darn!). Party on Garth ...

    I will take pics as progress continues & hope to continue to learn. Realistically I think Im about a month from nearly completed. Would like to be done ASAP but...."it" happens. The truth is doing all the work alone & trying to get the design right for a great room is taking a bit more time than I had expected..

    I know what you mean man. My setup is only about half that size, and it still took me like 2 1/2 weeks to get it up and running! But if there's one thing i learned about designing and building grow rooms, it's that your work will almost never be done! There's always gonna be new ideas poppin' into your head!

    Im with you on that. Everytime I'm sure of the design, I find a better idea or tweak ! Quite a learning curve. My last indoor was 10X10 with 1k MH back in the 80s, down & dirty. This time I am building the room for growing from scratch.

    Thanks ! I've been off track since I had company for a week. I installed the ac, put in 4 single receptacle boxes, 2 boxes per 20 amp breaker(4 plugs per circuit) on romex 12-2 with 15 amp plugs. I should be ready to put up final wall on inside of room in the next day or two.
    From there I'll be in the attic installing the 2 valuline 8 inch fans (in boxes), one to exhaust room & one to pull air thru reflectors. I have both 8 inch insulated passive air ducts (1 for lights) coming from filtered register in roof of large closet in kitchen. I'll post pics in the next few days ! Still been over a 100 degrees here. I'll sure be glad when the temps start getting in the low 90s or less ! I burn out fast in the heat working.
    Now cruzing down the road on the bike :joint:with the sattelite radio playing thru custom earbuds in a 100 deg, no problem !

    A couple from project . . . The top plug box is 3 ft from roof, pretty high up & space apart to handle timers, CO2 dispenser, fan speed controllers(2), wall W fan, & flo/gro setup. I wish I would move a bit faster ! Gonna push next week to get finished with building room.
