Some of you may remember me from my water fall/cmh RDWC build post here.https://www.thcfarmer.com/community/threads/started-a-cmh-grow-with-12-27-gal-sites.87264/ I am an old school grower and been cultivating since early 90s, I have grown in most styles including soil, soilless, vertical systems like Heath Robinsons designs and I eventually migrated to RDWC about 7-8 years ago. Having been living the life outside the law for so many years I decided last year to take the plunge and build a 1200 SF REC cultivation facility from the ground up with RDWC in mind. In my state we have a unlimited cultivation license and a limited cultivation license, the unlimited license allows up to a 500 SF canopy space and this is the license I choose to pursue. I already knew the numbers that I was capable of producing with a 500 SF canopy in RDWC and decided this would be a easy to maintain garden for just my self and my wife. As of right now it took us over a year to receive state approval and another 4 months to receive Fire Marshall approval. We currently have the facility constructed and are just finishing the final touches before we get our state inspection in 2 weeks. If everything goes good we will have our license in hand on that day. I am going to go ahead and document my build from this point on and if anyone has questions about our experience going rec and how I am building why systems please feel free to ask away. THC Farmer is a great community and I enjoy contributing to its wealth of knowledge. Ill attach a few pics to get started.
