Vinegar, why?

I always start with a cold shower, to make the skin contract. Raising the hairs and fibers, from the skin and make em easyer to rinse off.




Today have gone with preping for the next layer, sanding down the edges of the glass strips and uneven lumps of glass "web" caught in the first layer of polyester.



Getting into all the corners, took a lot longer then expected.
But this is an important step, to get it watertight and end up with a smoother surface.


Now I just need to vacuum clean and wipe it down, and it's ready for the next layer of polyester.

2nd layer

After cleaning out the dust from yesterdays sanding, I cut a few strips of glass to reinforce the bottom.
As the bottom is 3 sheet's of plywood, I figured id better lay a few layers of glass on the seems.



And put in a extra layer of glass, to reinforce the corners where the front plate and res devider meets.
Had a small strip of cut off glass, that fitted perfect and better safe then sorry.




Now I just have to wait for it to cure, then sanding a bit, cleaning and then the rest should just be top coatings of polyester.
No more glass work for now!

Last layer before assembling

Finaly done waterproofing the reservoir (I hope)

Put in the last layer of polyester coating for now, before I mount the top parts of the reservoir.
That will be screwed in place, giving it the last bit of stability, tho I don't douth they are strong enough to hold water already.

Sides, edges and corners ,got 6 layers of polyester.
The bottom, got 5 coatings.
Underside of lit got 3 coatings, mainly got to be splash proof.



While I am building the res, playing around with fiberglass high on polyester fumes. I am spending the nights, ordering the little parts on Ebay.

Irrigation fittings, drip hose, electronic timers, wire clips and what not. Stuff I won't need right now, but along the build.
Saving money where I can, and as I have planed everything out fairly well. I know what I will be needing, ordering a head and the shipping time shouldn't matter.

Like these timers are only 1/3 of the price on e-bay, with free shipping. Compared to buying it localy, I simply can't afford not to save 2/3, on as many things as I can.



Tomorrow or maybe later tonight, I will be putting the rest of the reservoirs together. Then I need to do a water test, to see if it's as water tight as I hope it to be.

This should provide some insulation from the cold concreat floor, otherwise heating the large flat reservoirs.
Would be a big cost, and something I would need to do most of the year.
More insulation would have been better, but I have limited height given I wanna stack 3 grows in the remaining space.


Cutting plywood for the reservoir
View Image

Welcome to HighKEA
View Image

Bottom sheets, front, back, side and middle pannels.

Predrilled everything with a 3mm drill, before screwing everything together. Working in a narrow space, when building a box you want to go from wall to wall. And screwed together, well enough to hold water, plants and at least parts of a large cabinet ontop.

View Image

12 mm Bottom sheet, it was supposed to be 15 mm.
But some stoner idiot got lost in the workshop, cut the wrong sheet up. (me)
The 12 mm, was for the back and side panels. That is supported by the walls, and mainly just to make it easyer to break down.
If we deside to sell the house, some time in the future.

I am anyway gonna polyester coat it, so i'll just throw in a little glass as well.
Then it will be strong enough, even if the bottom bends a little over time.


Just the guy I've been looking for!!!!! I need you in my basement fixing it up to start growing. I'm getting older and like to hire somebody to do things. And next to building chicken pins that's about were my building stops......lol......really all joking aside, nice work man. I'm gonna have to roll up my sleeves and get into my basement job so I can get started in Feb sometime

Got the top parts of the reservoirs in place, pre-drilled holes for the screws and cleaned up a bit.

Put in a seam, covering the screw holes. Pressed the top sheets in place, after sanding a few edges clean of polyester runnings.





Last I mounted the two cut out's, on a sheet of plywood.
To make a access hatch, to the two reservoirs for daily messurements.





Next will be more frame work, and I have to make the fake bottom/lit's to cover the rest of the reservoirs.
I won't be able to just make one big sheet, as I don't think I will be able to get them in and out of the cabinets.
Due to the middle support beam, so gonna make it in 2 parts, that will interlock on the middle.

Should be lot's of "fun"

More frame work

Got on with the frame, for the 6 cabinets and it's starting to take shape. But still a long way to go, and more materials to buy.

I have to go to IKEA, not that I feel like it.
But it's too much hazzel, making the doors and mounting hindges. Compared to just buying, white cupboard doors.




Moved the power outlet as well, I might have to move it again. So I haven't mounted it to the wall, besides with a few wire clips.
Later I will connect the other end of the wire, to the "grow" breaker in my power panel.
Seperating the grow, from the breakers used in the house and rest of the garage.
