    Thanks for the links. I want a premade cart because I need to keep the space I use contained. My house is very small(very very very small), there are no extra rooms (except for a closet I *might* be able to use). But really, I have to keep a small area to grow. If I have a cart, I know exactly how to utilize my space.

    Trust me, I would do that, but Kevin doesn't want anything like that. He is really funny about things, and it told me it would look to 'shop-y'. It is in the kitchen so it is highly visible.

    *sigh* I envy you guys (and girls) who have "grow rooms". The only way I get a grow room is if I put an addition to the house. Your room set up is *just* what I would want.

    You have a house? Ok, I have a tiny (huge by NYC standards but tiny anywhere else) studio apartment....

    But I totally understand about containing growing space. I have commercial chrome shelving (to hold the weight of all those damn books). I started with one shelf of plants, but then the books got moved to the floor and then the pots got moved into boxes and then.... So anyway, current count is something like 8-10 shoplights. This winter I may need more sun. We shall see.

    Oh yeah, I had one of those "book" shelves! Lol, now it is a Cattleya shelf!

    My problem is I can't hang anything from the ceiling - its in my lease. Sucks....I have a great room...but can't hang a light, at least I haven't figured out how yet...I'm working on it though, you can bet!
