    Electric is finally done. All new circuits run and tied into the breaker box. Any extra breakers will require a sub panel. Mines full!
    Today I started insulation. Put R15 into all the walls and this weekend I'll be putting in R30 into the ceiling. After that I just need to sheetrock the backsides of the walls and the ceiling, hang lights, install exhaust fan and filter. Almost there...
    I put in an order for new seeds for my first run in the room. I ordered Gorilla Glue #4(photos) from 420newguyseeds. Can't wait to finish this room up and get those beans in the ground!
    Anyone have any experience with GG#4 from 420newguyseeds?

      Awesome, I appreciate the feed back. I read that the buds get super sticky and that they have a pretty hight THC content. Around 22% to 26%. That's pretty good in my book.

      My current lonely girl grow is a photo GG4 from Paul. Seed was about to years old though.
      Good luck with your new grow room!

    You can't beat Paul's shipping. Less than a week!! Plus 3 of Paul's Purple Peyote seeds.

      Thats odd that you couldn't pay. I'd try calling Paul directly.

      Yeah it said I had to send payment to them in the mail and once they received it they would ship them to me, it's been a little bit since I tried I think it said I could use some crypto money to but I don't know how to do that stuff... I'll try calling them when I'm ready for more seeds

    Had a few free hours today. In-between my anniversary, work. Stapled faced Batts of R30 on the ceiling, padded out around the pipes to build a soffit, insulated inside the soffit as well. I found a perfect door at a used material lumber yard. It's in unused condition. 2-8 7-0 LH solid core with a maple veneer. Im gonna cut it down to 83" in height and scribe it down to the floor. My concrete floor is 3/4" out of level in 35". After it's installed I'll add weather stripping around the door stops. I want this room heavily insulated and sealed TIGHT!
    Tomorrow I'll hang the rock on the ceiling and get a coat of tape on it..
    Only a few more big items to accomplish. Paint all the brown wall board bright white, install infinity t8 and carbon filter with the temp and RH controller. Build cabinet doors for existing built-ins. Aaaannndd tthheeeeeennnn install the lights and bring in the girls.
    I germinated my seeds differently this time. With autos I just drop the bean directly into the final pot. This time with my new photo seeds I soaked them overnight in spring water for 24 hours ad dropped them in Coast of Maine Seed starter in 3.5" nursery pots. 4 GG#4 and 2 PPP (Paul's Purple Peyote). With any luck they will be in their final home by tomorrow night.
    I can see light at the end

      I will still plant a few autos along side this grow. I have fun growing those litte guys but im really looking forward to doing some serious training with the photos. I doubt I'll get a pound a plant but I sure as hell will try.

        Like always I'm a day behind lol hope you and the other half enjoyed your anniversary... glad to hear you are getting closer to the end on the growroom I'm excited for you and looking forward to seeing it finished. I to changed my germ process to something really close to yours I did a 24 soak and used rapid rooter, I've only done one that way (duckfoot auto) but I was impressed by the simplicity and how quick I saw roots coming out of the rooter then straight into a 5 gallon pot. Good luck buddy ๐Ÿ‘ happy growing

        I almost used the rapid rooters as well. I still have a bag from a while back. I check the bean this am and a few already popped.
        Good luck to you as well MeEasy.

      ***Update***
      Today I finished sanding the drywall ceiling then painted. Emptied the entire room of all my tools, mopped and vacuumed the floor and put down the first coat of floor paint. Definitely still needs another. If it's dry enough I'll get another coat on tonight before bed. This project has taken a bit longer than I originally hoped for but I can't complain. It's actually been kind of fun.
      With any luck I'll get my exhaust and filter installed tomorrow.

        The paneling reminds me of the basement on that 70 show ๐Ÿคฃ and I don't even remember if there was paneling on the walls on the show

        I had to grow up with paneling like that in finished basement in the house.

      Your not kidding MeEasy. Those walls will be soon painted white. On a good note. I put up a bunch of the trim along the ceiling and floors. Tomorrow fill nail holes, caulk the gaps and some touch up paint. I just went up in the attic above my 5x5 and removed the infinity T8 and ductwork. Just getting ready to install tomorrow. This project is so close to being done!!
      Don't judge me, I'm having a bad hair day....

        I wasn't saying there's anything wrong with it I actually like the look. I am following your build it's getting very close to grow time, I'm excited for you and jelly a little lol I can't wait to get mine going. I have to finish up everything on the house first so if I run short of cash my fun room waits not the rotten soffit that keeps getting worse with every rain ๐Ÿ™ƒ I have to at least act like an adult ๐Ÿ˜œ

      Very Well Done PLreef !!! All your hard work will be rewarded in future enjoyment.

      My grow room is a gubby little hodge podge of good grow equipment surrounded by ad hoc carpentry a few remaining spider webs and a dusty basement floor. But I love it down there with the pampered plants, a little Miles Davis on the speakers and a relaxing buzz settling into my grouchy old bones! Even my Saintly Spouse knocks before entering the Cannabis Sanctum Sanctorum!

      PS, My Infinity T8 should arrive today, I think we'll be very happy with that choice.

      Cheers,

      -Grouchy
      I grow using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
      My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
      I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
      Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!

        Thanks Grouchy! The Infinity T8 is freaking awesome. You'll love it, it's got a ton of power. I also picked up the Infinity 67 controller. The extra features are pretty cool but still need some refining. I can change all the setting from my phone, hourly, daily and weekly graphs are cool too.

      Just smoked a bone and I'm stilling here think about my grow room.. I'm ready to install my infinity t8 (still waiting on the louvered vent). Got me think where the hell in the fresh air gonna come in the room? This is directed at folks that have homemade grow room. How do allow fresh air to come in the room?

        I was think something along those lines. Are you using an air-conditioning filter?

        Nothing quite that complex for me. I think it was a filter for registers that is meant to pick up dust - it came in a sheet and I cut it to size. Itโ€™s a long way from a hepa filter but it does the job. So far no weird bugs or molds. That reminds me, it is probably about time I replaced it.

        I should add that my room is in the garage so it isnโ€™t connected to my central heat and A/C. I have a portable A/C unit I can take in there if I need it but I stopped growing indoors in the summer which is the only time it would have been necessary. No need to grow indoors during summer when the biggest grow light of them all is free!

      Our grow room is in our shed, so I bring in fresh air from outside thru a 8 inch hepa filter. I haven't turned it on yet during this grow. I'm trying a closed system approach. In your case being in your house, I would definitely draw from another room as mentioned above.

        Living in Michigan we have fridgid winters and oppressive heat in summer but in spring and fall temps most days are perfect for pulling in fresh air from outside. In my exhaust I used 2 dampers one in line that feeds out through exterior wall and one in line to vent into back room on main floor of my house keeping the inside exhaust around 30 feet from the intake. For bringing air in I got a filter housing that measures 20x25x5 from Home Depot. I ran 2 ducts for bringing in air that can be attached to tubes to get air from basement floor level since both CO2 and cold air sink to the floor. Or can be attached to 2 tubes that are mounted to a unit I made that fits into one of my basement windows. In the 4th picture you can see those tubes are connected by short piece of duct that helps in storage but is actually used when night time temps will be to cold to bring in outside air I put it in keeping air from being drawn in and change dampers to just circulate air through the house. I also have a short piece of duct with a cap on it for times when I want to cap one of the lines from that unit to moderate temp of incoming air by drawing from both inside and outside at same time.

          Nice set up. I appreciate the feed back. I was just on the HD website and pick out the same or very similar (20"ร—25") filter. I was thinking of framing out a spot down low on the wall for it. My basement stays pretty cool through out the summer.

          You will want to build some type of box or some such outside of the room to feed to the filter housing to keep light out. I painted inside black had air enter box at top and leave through bottom of box through filter by the floor in my room. Added pics of my box to the post to show what I did.

          I really enjoy planning it all out and doing the work myself. It's work but relaxing at the same time.

        Poppa I picked up a pair of 20" x 24" merv 8 filters. I'm putting 2 of them back to back. They didn't have merv 11 at my local hardware store. I'll have to check out Amazon.

          ***Update*** We are up and running! Filter and wall register installed, Infinity exhaust installed, lights installed. Still need to paint the brown paneling but that can be later. Germinated 4 GG4 and 1 Paul's Purple Peyote a few days ago. Also just dropped 5 Mister Fuzion (First Republic seeds) in a cup of water. Still have some odds and ends to do but for the most part I'm done! Pretty happy with the outcome.
