The roll up doors have finally been installed.

Next up is electrical. This is the plan to date:

The outlets will be pretty much as shown. The table saw will be on it’s own circuit (240V 20A) with an outlet in the middle of the floor. The air compressor and dust collector will each have their own 110V 20A circuit. The wall outlets will be on two 110V 20A circuits. Interior lights and exterior lights will each have a110V 20A circuit.

Lighting presents some uncertainties. What is certain is that they will all be LEDs. The interior lights will be 5000K. Calculators recommend ~90K Lumens. What form the fixtures take, how many and how they are mounted is up in the air.

The exterior lights should most likely be 3000K and equivalent to 300-500W. I’m torn over locating single fixtures on the walls or dual bulb fixtures in the corners. I’m looking for something that is on low level dusk to dawn with motion sensors switching to full brightness.

Nice! I dream of having that much room.

Have your say...
