Are you going to leave that tension rod in place, or work something else in, like an attic?

Looks like it is built over the water. At least really close.

How does that affect the humidity in the shop?


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

the tension cables (3) will be left in place. I plan to hang my flourcent lights from them. Shop is over water but humidity will not be a problem. Heating with electricity and wood (mostly wood) so if anything shop may be too dry at times. Humidity is not a problem in this area as the air very rarely gets hot enough to hold any great amount of humidity. Fog however is another matter.
