« Part 9: Electrical, insulation & walls 95% Part 10 of We have moved and building dream shop series no next part

Been crazy busy with visitors and family and work. Blondie and I made big progress and today we are now going to start moving machines and supplies in. The walls are up and painted, 18 Led lights are done stereo and big screen up with 6 Bose speakers. (Watched first college football in there today)...... We finished the heating and cooling 3.5 Ton with 10 outlets. All ducting up in attic. Had to give up part of the finish room and will be closing the air handling unit and ducting in a closet. I’ll have a metal /welding room and a finish room with explosion proof exhaust fan. (Yet to install). I used surcoat 2000 acrylic sealer non yellowing on floor.

Some trim needs finished but it time for our dream to move in.

Thx for looking and comments.

Great looking shop!!!!

I’m officially jealous. I’m moving from a 2-car garage shop to a 13×20. Ugh…..
