Build My Own Tent

Hello

I was thinking of buying a 4 x 8 gorilla shorty tent but then i started thinking.


I will have mould tough drywall (the bathroom stuff) and all the stuff I would need to frame in the space i want. I have a roll of 4 foot by 100 foot mylar film already too. It is under the stairs so there is no light leaks where it is going as long as i wall off the space.

Other than framing it in, giving it a circuit and cutting holes for air flow is there anything else you need to do building a room to prevent problems? I would put a ceiling in and leave the floor as is and probably put a door on it. And cut 6 inch holes for extraction fans and make intakes that fit a house furnace filter.

This will be a flower room. I will use a small tent to veg it big enough to go flower and just keep it up every 4 weeks or so.

I think i have to part with my 315CMH. I only have about 5 feet total height and that light needs some space. Too bad i really liked it.

Bit of an old thread.. What did you do? I'd always recommend a solid structure over a tent if it's a possibility. Less chance of sucking the sides in, more structural capability for hanging fans and lights etc.

I just recently got a shorty 4x8 for my short basement. I have so much work to do to build down there i took the shortcut.

I will be jealous to see your build bro.

I am growing 4 in my house legally. Depends on state rules. Canada is weird about getting a MPAR or something but i would probably just grow what i want.

What would they do? Prosecute a person with a med card. Highly doubtful.

They are too busy getting people for having 50 grams for the purpose of distribution. Note to self only carry 30g at a time :D

And i ditched the tent idea. I am going to build a room that works. 10 x 6 or 13 x 6 depending on how it looks.

10 x 6 fits better and i can almost cover the space with my lighting. I will also build a veg tent and storage area. ITs going to be GREAT
