First System:

Making use of an 8 foot by 8 foot area -we have built a system that will have 8 growbeds and using a 1000 gallon fish tank for rainbow trout which will be sunk into the ground outside.

There are 6 growbeds on the upper floor and a large growbed on the lower floor.All of these inside, with one growbed outside alongside the fishtank.

 

First we measured up carefully..

Extra hands helped to make the building work easier!

Base floor in and top floor support being put in..

next - the flooring

 checking the top floor and taking a break!

stairway being built

stairway nearly ready

Next - sorting out the growbeds and the pipework

testing the system to make sure everything flows nicely and that there are no leaks!

Note the external fish tank plus an outside growbed and spare growbeds if needed

six growbeds upstairs all containing clay balls

large lower growbed

outside fish tank with plumbing pipes all working

 We envisage growing medicinal and culinary herbs in this new system.

And then we started on a second system!
