    I spent alot of time on this project ,and it was'nt cheep to build. But I love It Click on img to inlarge it . [​IMG]


    Here is a picture of the Heat Chamber it has its own door. [[​IMG]][/img]


    It has a false wall on both side walls the air is pulled down Through the bottom hatching trays and pushed out the vent holes in the walls [​IMG]


    you can see the opening for the false wall here, the pvc is the watering system, Ican fill the water trays form the outside [​IMG]


    I will be doing a home page with more pictures and building notes the wall panels and doors all have 1 1/2 styrofoam and I't run's for one min every 7 min , and maintains 99.1 - 100.1 . In the on off mode. When its in the porportional mode the air temp only verys .2 of a degree F.
