I’ve been kickin around the house during this covid lockdown and decided to take a shot at building a dedicated drying chamber for my grow and future grows.
At one point, I was thinking about buying a small tent to hang-dry buds before moving on to a dry trim and jars for curing. Then the quarantine happened.
So, my plan has been to not spend money and see what I can do about building a workable drying chamber / curing jar storage space. A makeshift cannabis wine cellar if you will.
Here is my progress thus far. I have spent a total of $5 on PVC and closet rod sockets. Everything else is scrap from a second shelf that I tore down to make room for my grow tents.
In picture #2, I am planning to run a 4" flex hose across the entire length of the box, at the top. I will then perforate the hose which will connect a Infinity Cloudline T4 set to kick the fan on whenever the RH is above 64%
The far right side of the box is left open slightly, which you cans see in picture 3. There is a piece of wood at the top on the outside and a piece of wood at the bottom on the inside as well as a layer of bugscreen between the two. The idea here is to allow fresh air to be drawn in, that fresh air will pour in from the top (away from the buds).
That’s as far as I’ve gotten. I need to fire up the roto-zip to cut a 4" hole on the left side of the box for the vent hose. The fan will be mounted on the left side as well.
I have not done anything for smell controll… YET. Going to see how bad the smell is without running any carbon, my fear is this area is directly below the closet in the master bedroom. Both wifey and I are working remotely so, good time to experiment. If it does smell, I will run the output of the 4" Cloudline fan into the air-intake of my flower tent and let it filter the air that way.
Am I forgetting anything? Thoughts?
