Been a while since last update. It finally dried up enough to get the big cement trucks back on property. 4 trucks totaling 30 yrds, 5 inch 3700 psi. What a game changer inside and out.

Yesterday Blondie and I ran 28 120 volt outlets on 18 breakers. All outlets 50 inches from floor. Fellow lumberjock taught me this, no bending and plywood won’t hit them if leaned against wall. No more than 2 outlets on a breaker. Some completely solo, like air compressor for example. Today putting in walls for another layer of insulation R19 that we will be adding and will start all the 240 volt outlets on Monday. Recived 12 more 7200 lumen LED industrial lights for inside totaling 16 thus far.

We have decided to put 2 outlets on the porch and trying to figure out the outdoor lighting. 2 ceiling fans will be going in on the porch as well.

We’ll back to work, thx for looking fellow woodworkers.

Hi from LA, that is one nice shop. And that porch looks and sound nice. Look like you need to build a couple of rocking chairs. Thanks for the update.

Very awesome. Looking grrrreat! Congrats. I haven’t been on here much in the past few years. I wish I could have caught you before you poured the concrete. Only to suggest a receptacle in conduit near the floor, maybe 8-12” for your table saw. Oh well, wherever you put that beast, it’ll work out. So exciting to be doing this. Carry on.
