Wall build

Got started on the wall, hung mylar on the outside of the woodframe. Mounted two wood sheets, now I need to get started on the passive air in take.

As this room won't be running 24/7, I plan to add a simple DIY Carbon scrubber to the passive in take. To prevent any backflow of smelly air, to the garage as the fan will turn off during lights out. It might seem like overkill, but I like to play it safe. It will also help to keep the room clean, from dust and fumes from my I work in the garage.

Thank you, we will see how the seedlings will turn out. I hope everything is going to work out, if not, I'll just get the new space going with clones.

Wall update

It's slow progress, but im getting there. I have a back injury, that prevents me from working more than a few hours per day.

Cut a good size hole in the wall, for my passive in-take. The plan is to make a simple 4" box filter, that slides into place on the inside of the wall.




I had the pleasure to insulate my room today.
Had to be done, and now it's a job done. Covered the backside with mylar,
for IR reflection and moisture block. Finaly covered the whole thing up, with wood sheets.
Now I need to build the end wall/hidden door, but waiting for rotery hinges ordered on ebay.



Then it just need a litte paint, a few electric wires and some ventilation.

Electrical wiring

Started pulling cables today, from the main breaker box to the room.

I'm gonna hook the 3 wires to a 3x 16 amp breaker, splitting the room of from the rest of the house. One line will power the lights, second line will run watering and exhaust and the third line will power a few wall plugs for what ever.

The 3x 16 amp will make sure, that every line have enough juice to run everything. But in case of a fail on the exhaust, it will cut all power on all 3 lines. (once had a shortage in a exhaust, but light kept running. With no cooling or watering, and everything in the room died.)



In the garage attic, I have placed a small box. Running two main wires down to the room, for wall plugs and watering. The lights will be wired from the attic, keeping my ballasts out of the room. The same goes for the exhaust, but a third and smaller wire for the fan controll need to be installed.

I've got me a bucket to sit on! Looks like you are making great progress. Nothing quite like building your own custom stuff.

Welcome aboard FrozenFire, I try to get something done every day while the misses is at work. I've always build my own setups, but I have testet several pre made grow systems. Most have been a bit of a disapointment, that in some way needed modding to work for growing weed.

Im running low on cash, to build the flow table. So I might do a first crop, in a smaller pre made Ebb n Flow system I got in the attic.

Circuit breaker

All right

Working on my circuit breaker install, assing a new 3x 16 amp breaker.

This is fairly simple to do, BUT I would not recommend doing this. Unless you have some knowledge, about what goes where and what wire gauge to use. Fucking this up, could burn you house down and leave you without insurance. So do the research or pay an electrician.

Atm im at a stand still, as I won't fuck with the main breaker when im home alone. In worst case, the wrong side of the breaker could easy render you unconscious or even kill you. Best to have some kinda backup IMO, but it's a given I don't plan to electrocute myself.

Build is looking good. Should be dynamite when you are done.
