Thinking Vertically 101 : The Build & Grow

Ok so first things first
Im Boyd . Im just a closet grower guy, been growing for about a year.

Im thinking about going vertical for the new year.
I have about 6 weeks till the next cycle and wanted to do a build thread where I ask for your suggestions based on my room and current gear , and then a grow thread where you and me can see how our designs worked out.
Except, this is the internet, and noones got that kinda attention span...
soooooooooooo
Im gonna do it in a long and convoluted build/grow thread ftw

We are officially into the build with pics if you wanna skip to the meat click me to go to page 4!

currently in the home stretch of a scrog
running c99 and RGT
gonna be ok , had two plants die in the scrog from heat and a topdressing gone wrong
so

Im no old salt or know it all.

I feel however, i can get more out of my space
Im thinking with RGT and c99, I have the stretchy genes to work on this right now
the gg4 is yet to be flowered by me, so lets say i have 5 knowns and a possible for this grow. I have no idea how gg4 stretches

I have a veg room, waiting for their spotlight , currently on the upswing of a borg issue
current flower had some show up as well. I finally figured out you cant be as heavy handed on borg treatment as the bottle says, but thats another thread

anyways,
i figure instead of 24sf, why not try ~85sf with 6 girls?
so if you are down, Ima start asking some question?
Ill start with what size pots? Ive used 3gl, 5gl buckets, 10gl pots, and totes from 18 up
should i go with 10's? 18's might cramp my workspace, maybe growbags?

Your closet is 4' wide, 6' deep, and 7' tall? 2, 600's will jam in there. I would build a shelf halfway up the wall, all the way around the room. Do two levels of plants. Tall/stretchy strains on the floor, no-stretch/bushy strains on the upper shelf.

Line the walls with some kind of trellis/netting, and BOOM!!! Walls of weed. Mount brackets on the middle part of the door for a plant, and have a container on casters below it, no wasted space!!

so as you can see, i have a 4" fan pulling air from the veg room and pushing through the three hoods and into a 8" hose going to the carbon
and I also have the exhaust of the ac going into that same scrubber
which means the air is not getting recycled and I cannot figure out how to do so without another carbon filter or fan setup and also sucking up my ac cooled air
so im open for suggestions there
in the summer , its a struggle for the ac to keep things below 81*
i guess with just 2 600's it was easier for the ac , and in looking at it again , 3 600 would be too much so yeah 2 woiuykd be cool

I remember a thread in here a guy had his lights go up and down using a set of pulleys and a light mover
id like to try that , but I cant find the thread , it was however enough info that I think I could pull it off myself with a little engineering

I like the casters idea dbl, was already looking for a dolley for the door girl
but i cant see how id make the shelf work with the stretchy as hell rgt and c99 will stretch almost as much

one of my concerns about vertical has always been plant mobility , just being able to move everything out of the room to clean up, but since ive been trying to scrog, its kinda a moot point. I would be worried more about bugs in between the plant and wall

I do have a borg issue, and Ive been treating regularly and the flower room hasnt been hard to control but my veg room, poor things gotta get the spray 1-2 times a week lateley
Im not crazy about doing this cause they arent looking as green and well fed as they used to. its also holding their growth back a bit. but thats ok as its coming under control now and i can concentrate on feeding and nurturing them back to 100%

any ways if you have some pics of the shelf idea, id like to see em

Pretty sure it was Marlo that had the light pulley set-up.
