Building a bucket is like art. No two are the same. Read as much as you can, look at every picture on the website and the community, and then start creating. It's a very simple design, you just need to have an understanding of the basics. I used a dryer vent door on both sides of the bucket to help block out ambient light. The inline fan is not too loud, its quieter than a window AC unit. It keeps the bucket at lower temperatures and freshens up the air easily. For the main lighting configuration I have a combination of 23w and 42w CFL bulbs, installed horizontally. I also have five meters of 5050SMD LED strips on the walls of the 5gal container. This helps a lot with the development of the lower parts of the plant.
