So I haven’t grown in over 20 years and am now going to start again soon…I bought a house that had an older house behind it I been using as storage and a shed, and decided to use the 10’x10’ old bathroom as a grow room. Here are a few pics, the questions will be at the end:
Here is the start:
Removed old toilet and tiles:
Here I am going to build an air inlet that fresh air will pass through 2 hepa filters prior to entering the room:
Installed roof joist and R-14 insulation as well as tan all new electrical:
Installed a 6k BTU ac in the old door, and sealed the entire room with pesticide infused spray foam and caulk:
Next I boxed in the air intake and started painting. Went with flat white latex and epoxy flooring (left the old faucets for nostalgia):
I have 2 Mars Hydro ts1000s coming in and an 8” air exhaust (to be vented through the roof but under the old tin roof) and a couple wall mounted fans…
I live on an island in the South Pacific sea, so ambient air temps are ALWAYS hot and humid but I can easily manipulate that with the ac and dehumidifier (as necessary).
I have access to fox farms soil and nutrients, and plan on running 6-8 plants in the old bathtub area (which is 6’ x 3’) but my biggest hurdle are getting seeds here. We are a US territory and have USPS on island, so can anyone point me in the right direction for seeds?
And finally, does anyone see any issues or have any pointers I can use for my build? Right now it is 99% dark in there with a tiny bit of light showing in the ac vent, and I’m not sure how to block that without blocking the vents?
