What do you all think about growing in a shed??
    #278263 - 09/10/09 10:43 AM (7 years, 2 months ago)

Like having a legit yardwork tool storage shed with a false wall in the back. I'm thinking about having a 4X8 section partitioned off and then split into mother/clone, veg, and flower areas.

Do you think with adequate insulation I would be able to keep it silent from the outside? I want people to be able to walk right past it without even knowing there's something amiss. I've got my card, but stealth is still my favorite part about this hobby :lol:

Also, what would be the lest sketchy way of getting the ventilation to work so that my neighbors don't notice my shed is blasting 200CFM out the side all day?

That sounds like a good idea!
Sheds are an excellent place to grow, just have to keep people out of it.

As far as ventilation, how about some stove pipe up through the roof with a vent cap?

Make it look like an out house?

It was just a quick thought.

Ok so how about this. Make a room inside the shed so you have space between the room and the outside wall. This space will be for ventilation. The warm air coming from the interior room will also act as an insulation barrier.

Understand what i am getting at so far?

hmm yeah that sounds like a good method for air circulation... I live in an area with lots of snow though, so I don't want the outside of the shed to be super warm or it'll definitely look a little weird.

Also, I was already planning on having at least 6" of insulation between the inside wall of the grow area and the outside of the shed, not just for thermal insulation, but auditory as well.

yep, Some how your going to have to disguise or defuse the light coming from your ventilation. So the room inside a room i was thing would maybe solve that. By arranging your ports in a way as to break up the light coming from inside to the outside. The warm air insulation idea was just an after thought really.

Personally i wouldn't like the idea of growing in a shed.  Simply for the fact that you're growing in an area accessible to the public.  This increases the risk of getting caught or ripped from people who've figured out what you're doing.  Of course this risk is directly proportional to the amount of traffic near your house.  If you live in a secluded area the risk is lower compared to growing in a housing development.

You've already pointed out the problem of growing in an area with a lot of snow.  Heat rises, snow on roof melts, and suddenly you have a shed that has no snow on top while everything else is under a few inches.

i like the idea of building a small little room inside the shed like SM suggested.  What are the dimensions of the shed and how much do you plan on putting in there?  If this place is in sight of a lot of neighbors and such I would address that.  If a pedo can lock up a child and keep her for 18 years without anyone else knowing, im sure you can do this.  What kind of an area are you in - population density wise?

im setting one up right now.seems pretty easy just not very well ventilated. lights shine through at night..or it glows i should say, so have a flood light or something on it if your running lights at night.
Also maybe set a fake dog house or something beside it for your ballasts, electrical panels, etc.....things you wouldnt want wet, seems to cover all the issues ive seen so far. oh yea and for security bolt it into or cement it into the ground, and padlock that motha, just yea not good if its too far in the open.

I live in a pretty dense area, with neighbors all around, but also with high fences and dense foliage during the summer.

I'm also planning on building the shed from scratch, so it can be whatever dimensions I want it to be, that's why I was thinking a false wall to hide the grow would be awesome.

oh shit!  Well, then my question would be how much room do you have to work with?  Your imagination is your limiting factor.  That would be sooo nice.  I take it there's no possibility to just make an addition on your house that would include a smaller secret room.  You could dig down and have it sunken into the ground a bit.  This sounds like a really fun project.  Do you have a construction (or similar) background at all?

Just a thought for heat dispersion, you could run some PVC pipe underground to cool then pipe it back up through a faux doghouse. In the winter, the frozen ground should cool the exhaust for you. another plus is that the pipe may muffle the sound of your fan, otherwise use a duct muffler.

the current shed is about 10x 16, and I'm thinking about just replacing the whole thing. it's a piece of shit so it wouldn' draw any attention from the neighbors to build a more sturdy one, especially with winter out here. I don't have a huge construction background, but I know enough to get this done without too much trouble. I have built supersonic missiles from scratch after all... how hard can this be? :shrug: :lol:

my main limiting factor for this is cost, unfortunately I'm not super rich, so building this hoss might drain my account for awhile.

Bleached white carpet on the roof during winter! This will also act as a insulation layer and from a distance you can't tell if it's snow or not.

So is this shed wooden construction? Is there any ceiling and below the floor space? Would running your vents through the floor be feasible?

well the shed that's there is going to get completely removed. so basically yes, running them under the floor is totally possible. I was going to pour a good 6" slab of concrete under this shed to ensure it's strength and stability, so I could either bury exhaust vents under that, or above it with a wooden floor.

I just watched the never get busted dvd and they state that the same laws don't apply as if they where searching a residence. It's more likely you will get busted growing in a shed. At least according to the dvd.

[edit] Actually it was the second volume he made. Never get raided.
