The project begins!

So, here's the start of the project. My goal is to build an aquaponics system in my basement to grow some veggies, hopefully year round veggies, probably mostly greens. Let's get started then, shall we?

The first picture here is the spot in my basement where I plan to setup the system. As you can see there's a bunch of stuff in the way...like a gazebo shelter thing, and a large cooler. That cooler is actually going to be part of the system as the sump tank.

 The second picture here is the result of my cleanup. It's hard to tell but I spent a lot of time sweeping this area, it was very dirty. The shelves below are to be part of the system ,which is why they're now in this area. That 2x4 is actually nailed to the concrete floor. Somebody at some point was framing down here and never completed the job, so this is what I've got to work with.

All in all this cleanup was about 45 minutes work. There are things that got moved around that you can't see in the picture.
