    Hello Everyone....I wanted to share my new DIY grow tent that I have put together...I still have some finishing touches but wanted to get it on here....
    So I decided to sit down and figure out a good DIY tent since I am a hands on type of guy. I origonally mad this thing 48x36x72 but have new dims of tent at 48"x24"x60" or 4'x2'x5'

    I am using Panda Grow covering that I picked up a roll at my nearest grow store for 21 bucks, some duct tape and some PVC pipe and fittings. All in, it was a great project that I was very happy with :D

    So at this point I had to decide what type of door I wanted and was able to come up with a pretty good setup

    Here she is with the door. I still need to get some magnetic strips to affix to the front flap and the door flap to make a good seal

    All in, I was happy

    Added in some PVC pipe as weight and roller for the door flap

    Hey, Gorrej thanks for posting!
    That's a huge complement and thank you.That is exactly what I was going for! The best part is it cost me all of a little time and about $42 :D Would've been a little cheaper if I bought the contractors packs on the fittings a pipes, wishing I did as I am planning an even bigger DIY tent project (I will be sure to post it too). I still have quite a bit of the Panda Grow film. I figured if I was going to do it it needed to be done right.

    I still have some additional touches. I need to work on the ventilation very soon. As I am right now pulling in the AIR from the front flap as I don't have the magnetic strips in place yet to seal it off.
    I am pondering on how to add this in and have a couple of ideas, I am all ears for everyone's thoughts

    I've got the inside all sealed up this weekend. I added some magnets on the flap for now to help hold closed better....still light leaks. I am liking the idea with the zipper and will be adding really soon! Thanks St_Nick!

    I also have some centrifuge fans coming.....can't wait but need the $$ first. A buddy is going to hook it up! :D

    I need to prep the tent for the openings...still coming!
