Hope they show up soon! I’ve been following your blog and I’m looking forward to seeing it go up. Between yours and some other “new shop” blogs I’ve read, I’m beginning to realize how lucky I was with my contractor!

Frank, The shop is coming along. Hope the rest of the parts get there soon.
You planning on adding your own panel for the electric or just going off the house one? I was fortunate that the current panel had a number of empty slots and I was already in the basement.

Look forward to seeing more.

I’m having a “12 X 24” 100 amp sub-panel installed the 12 X 24 means that there will be 12 spots available for 220v & 24 spots available for 110v circuits. I already had my main panel in the house upgraded to a 200 amp service. Right now I’m waiting for the latest estimate from one of the electrical contractors.
