Just finished up on my first nep grow chamber. This one is my lowland chamber... or highland... not sure yet, I have to build the second chamber in a couple of weeks.
I am still debating whether or not to sacrifice looks for efficiency, the side glass panels let out a lot of light but I will test around and change to foil if necessary. I am also considering different options for the top... I may lower the lights in so I can build a good hood to keep in the humidity. I will add foil to the top for sure though, and I am working on a fan for some air movement. I purchased a fogger at menards to keep up the humidity and heatpads will be positioned on the floor underneath trays of water.
The front doors are sliding glass and the sides are tempered glass sheets as well. The back is covered with plastic and a layer of foil. The wood is pine, and yes... i used nothing to protect the wood from the humidity : ) I do plan on having to rebuild in a couple years but this is kind of a test.
Just posting to share with TF, if there are any questions shoot. Hopefully this can give somebody some ideas on how to build in the future.
Hope you enjoy, if you would like me to post pictures after I have placed my plants inside just say so and Ill update in a bit.
The dimensions: 4'x3'x2'
The light fixtures are 4' T8 w/ a warm and cool bulb in each. Any recommendations pertaining to my lights is welcomed.
Sorry for the enormous size of the pics, resizing on photobucket isnt much of an option with dialup
