anybody use a loft bedroom ?

is it considered more of a risk ??

 

I'm assuming not unless you've got like 10 ballasts but i could be wrong ?

@echo I remember seeing a story in a newspaper years ago about cops raiding a house and finding weed in the loft, I think it was somewhere in Scotland, there was a photo of a row of houses all covered in snow apart from one house in the middle with no snow on it, and for some reason the cops thought it looked a bit suspicious.haha But there must been mega heat in that loft and alot of plants.

I would thought a couple of plants in the loft would be ok with modern lights not being very hot, I would chance it but I dont know much about growing yet. Smile

Yea loft can be fine as long as you are well insulated.

hi mate 

I’m a loft grower. As @Bobdurban says it needs to be insulated (so your snow doesn’t melt 😉)

I used to use tents in the loft (roof cube for flower and a 3x3x5 for veg with extra insulation on the tent roofs but don’t use the flower tent now (the insulation I used is top notch)

Personally I wouldn’t recommend loft growing unless you’ve got it insulated!

But otherwise it can be done for sure

I’m just starting out in the loft. I’ve insulated the floor and put boards down. I’m thinking of using 75mm celotex insulation between the rafters. Do you think this will be enough? Or maybe add a space sheet over the top?

hi there, welcome to percys...

sounds good.. if using leds heat is less and the 75mm celotex should be fine.. more wouldnt hurt ... though u have to weigh up the risks in your area / country .. if snow dont melt on your roof you know youre fine 😉 

im pretty sure you'll be ok

@chillbert

Thanks, nice to have finally signed up after listening to the podcasts for so long 😂

I’ll be running a lumatek 465 compact pro L.E.D. So hopefully the snow won’t melt 🤞😂

Hi all, jumping in on this thread as I am now struggling to find a new location due to rooms moving around in the house. Until I get a new shed/man cave … I have two options:

Utility room but located at front of house beside front door. Assuming this is a no go for sure. Ideal space to accommodate all the gear.

Loft space … not boarded, exposed insulation and quite dusty at times when windy.

Your thoughts would be most appreciated as always my fellow growers 🤟

@Hybridhobbyist i use the same light in a 4x4 it is a great light and it does not give of to mutch heat (i have to supliment with a oil rad in winter) so i think you should be just fine in a loft, is it in like a loft bedroom ore in like a «cold» Storage area? If the loft itselfe is at room temp to begine with. I doubt that your snow wil melt mutch quicker than the one one your neigbors house, if it a cold storage rom type loft you might have to insulate it just to ceep your tent warm enugh for the plants, and protect your snow Smile
