« Part 7: Concrete Floor and Porch in, Outlets in fast n furious. Part 8 of We have moved and building dream shop series Part 9: Electrical, insulation & walls 95% »

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.

What a great looking shop. Sounds like experience is shaping this into an ideal work space. I like the porch for some relaxing. Your dog looks like he/she finds it all acceptable and has selected a spot to supervise future activity.
