I forgot to post my progress.
I got some free insulation and bought plaster board.
It's basically finished now and has become my microgeens shed.
It's now mid winter and the LED lights are keeping it warm enough for good germination.
I can't wait to do more testing in the summer.

Ok finally have the shed up. I've basically ran out of cash though so it'll be going quite slow now. I have plugged up the holes in the shed to try stop air coming in from the sides instead of the cool tubes. I have no ventilation in yet to help draw the hot air out. However I have just put one thermometer probe on top of a cool tube and one outside. I'll do more experiments when I'm finished.

Does the system include a drain for condensation?
I didn't spot any glue in the video,  are the pipes friction fit?
That might be enough allow drainage.

I didn't really think about condensation. Hopefully it will be negligible or drain out the unglued joints like you suggested.

Finally had enough mates around to get rid of the old 200 kg spa and bring the shed pieces around. This morning I've flashed the deck and tidied up. I have a mate coming this weekend to erect the shed yay.

Peacharines. It's a cross. They are so juicy and delicious.

Perhaps there could be cooking a three course meal for 4+ and 8+ and 12+ guests?

I've laid the quarry rubble and hopefully will do the concrete slab (yes I know it's not very permacultureish) on Sunday. After that I can build the shed.
