If your going to go automated You should look into getting your fan (if you use any) on a thermostat so it will turn on and off at specific temps. The store should have all these available.
    Drip System: Yes
    Ventilation on Setup: Open
    Light Ventilation: Yes (but I may just go with a regular T5HO, not sure yet)
    Light Pulleys: Yes
    Fan: No ~ I want to try and keep the humidity up around the plants. And with open ventilation, the air movement around the setup will already be there.

    Cool sounds good! In my room the humidity still is really high even when it is heavily vented. I'm not sure how high the humidity will stay with the whole room open? Unless the relative humidity in the shop is high your likely to have humidity problems with the open setup.
    Are you going to mist them to do this? Maybe shut off 3 of the 4 sides. That should help some.

    If you vent the lights you can get them much closer to the plants. Anyway some food for thought.

    The setup has a built in overhead misting/drip system. And I totally thought about closing off the sides and the back with some sort of reflective surface, probably mylar. I think it'd be for the best, so I plan on doing that.

    Just an update.. the grow unit chosen for this was discontinued.. so I had to go with this instead:

    It's a 9'L x 7'H x 5'W double vented GrowLab 145L

    GrowLab is an excellent brand, there really aren't too many that compare in terms of price and quality of materials. The seams could be sealed a little better, but overall I was very happy with mine.
