no previous part Part 1 of The Nehls End Workshop series Part 2: If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all »

My new shop arrived today, looking forward to setting it up. I bought a 12’x 30’ gable shed with 8’ walls. It was an interesting process to watch as they set it down in my yard today. Now I will have to save to start putting in the electrical. Plan to put 110 every 4’ about 4’ up on the walls and 220 every 8’. Plan to put 8 double bulb florescent fixtures in the ceiling for lighting. Along with some task lighting and outlets for hanging ceiling appliances and I’m sure there will be other things that have slipped my mind at the moment. Will start laying out for the boxes and go shopping to start pricing the sub panel and other electrical items that will be needed. The one nice thing about having other shops prior to my new one is that I learned quickly you never had enough electrical in the shop. So that will be the first thing I do in the shop so that I can start using it while setting things up the way I want them.

Yes that is and will be the name of my shop. A fellow LumberJock made the name suggestion and I discussed it with my friends and they all liked it and said it sings and fit me well. Being new to LumberJocks I’m still feeling my way around the blog. I will post pics in the blog just have to get my sawdust filled brain to work this stuff out here.

That sound great, Greg. Why don’t you take some pictures as your setting it up. That would be great.
