Peter had an interesting brick structure that was just the right size for us to install a 2 bed system. He built the wooden stands for the growbeds to sit on, which made it nice and simple for us to then come in and install the fish tank underneath and the two growbeds on top.

It looks like the tank is under the growbeds surrounded by the "limestone blocks"...

It's going to be hard to harvest on the inside corner of the growbeds.. maybe he plans to cut a window in his shed for that purpose...

Tried to ring him today, but I'll try again tomorrow because the timer where it is, is not good, water might get into it... I think you can see Carl telling him about it in one of those shots, the timer needs to go in under a bed, away from the weather or elsewhere.

EB, well the timer looks like one I have. An Excalibur outdoor timer... If so, they are IP44 rated.

Should take rain and water splashing with no problems... but worth checking.. and so far these timers I got have been the more reliable timers out of the other cheapies.. Full sun, some rust where the screws are, but has not been out of sync as yet...

I'd like to see the tank or at least under those fine BYAP growbeds. Everything is hidden from view. How the heck am I supposed to steal, I mean, borrow ideas if I can't see anything?

Nice looking system though. Will the plants get enough sun?
