    Labtec's 1200 Watt Garage Loft

    Hello everyone, I'm Back.
    It took a little while to get everything rolling, but I've finally got it done.
    I ended up finding a house with a garage that has a loft in it. It's pretty small, but secluded from the rest of the house. It also stays pretty cool even during the day.
    The first step was to cover the windows. After that I hung up my old chamber's panda film shell that I kept intact. This was actually pretty easy. The lights and carbon filter/fan needed a place to hang as well, so I decided to throw two 2x4s up across the top and hang them from there.

    Next step was to hook up the electrical. There was an ac line coming right where I needed it, so, snip snip, junction box, then run an outlet to where I needed it. Unfortunately I had to change it to 120 from 240 volt.

    After everything was setup, I brought my freshly transplanted girls over and set them up. The temp stays pretty comfortable in there.

    Well, here's some porn for y'all.

      So thats no tent? But panda paper that you zipped down-across-and-up again?

      Intense, I like it good job - Do you not have to worry about drainage much since it is soil and not a hydro medium? Hows that work there

      Don't over veg in there!

      I might try some low drainage trays ([nine]and[nine]) and doing a quick flip - thicket like SOG, maybe get one 360 type fan mounted in a corner or something

      Props on your secret soil garden - Nice Work

                How long are you planning to veg?

                I've done this before, and imo its not worth it. The plant that you stick in the middle will do very well, but the plants that are on the 2 sides of this center plant will begin to get shaded very quickly. Especially after the stretch. You'll basically be sticking a big plant in front of 2 plants that were in the "sweet spot". It looked like a great idea in veg, but I found it to be counterproductive in the end.

                    Thanks Aerohead for stopping by the new pad. Sorry it took me so long to reply. I noticed my last grow had the same thing Marlo was talking about, one healthy plant, but the two adjoining girls take a hit. This run I'm just going to slightly angle 2 plants towards the lights, I'll post a pic when I get a shot.

                    Flux451 you are correct. That is not a tent, but a panda film tent-like enclosure that I had from my last grow. It actually worked out pretty good in this new attic. I just ended up moving the zippers from one of the sides, to the middle of the long side. I just transplanted, so I'm in the process of slowly giving them more and more water every time. I'm flipping these girls tomorrow actually. 2 of my strains stretch pretty good in flower, so hopefully this room doesn't fill up too much. I do have some trays that I'm going to put under them probably in a week or so. Thanks again.

                    I appreciate it mrktwiz, thanks for the good vibes.

                    Thanks Red. Hopefully these girls love their new home. We'll see in a few days. They're just starting to grow good again after their transplant, so I'm flipping them tomorrow. I pretty much have to have 2 runs in before my lease is up in 5 months. Thanks for coming by.

                    DonkDBZ, always awesome to see you come by.

                    Dank you Noobian, they'll be budding pretty good in a month or so.

                    Sorry Marlo,hehe. I have been super busy with school lately. For strains I have two different super lemon haze strains from seed, OG Kush, Headband, and Pure Kush. For nutes I'm using LC's soilless mix 1 with recipe 1. I also use some compost tea and some Root's Trinity every time I water. I don't have that much time at this house, so I'm flipping tomorrow. 2 of my strains, well actually 3 since I have 2 super lemon Haze strains from seed, stretch pretty good in flower, so I'm hoping to fill up the chamber pretty good. For the lights I'm using 2 600 watts. Thanks for coming by, I always love to check out your threads.

                    RipVanWeed, thanks. I love your grows as well. thanks, and come back soon for more picture updates.

                        Welcome back labtec. Everything looks great as usual... Have you thought about wrapping that entire loft in panda? Just a suggestion... You have a lot of space to work with. You could go stadium style, hang the lights right down the middle... I just know how expensive college tuition is these days. I'm paying for 2 bachelors degrees myself.

                          Great to see you back old friend The new set up looks clean and simple
                          Q? Are you concerned about heat? An uninsulated attic space is can turn into an oven as the days get longer.

                              Thanks Nukku. I got my two harvests planned pretty good, so hopefully I can get them both in.

                              I thought about wrapping the whole loft in Panda film, but decided against it. I'll be happy with two small harvests. Thanks for stopping by Bobblehead.

                              Dank you vintner, I appreciate you stopping by the loft. How is your dob treating ya? Super jealous

                              NEARTHEBEACHBOY danks. Keep on rocking it, nice to hear from you again.

                              Got some new pics on day 18. It gets kind of cold up there during the day (55-65), but that should change within the next couple weeks
