That is a great space, Fred. You are gonna really enjoy making sawdust in there.

I'm really glad we built a separate space for lumber, too. Not as big as yours and not dry walled and painted but, the wood is not in the shop.

Looking good, Fred.   Bet you're happy inside and maybe a big smile on your face, too.

That was a real good decision having the DW contractor leave the floor protection down for you to work off. It saved you a bundle of headaches. Hope you had help putting up the light fixtures, they can be a bugger to try and hold and attach to the ceiling off a ladder.

Actually the lights aren't a problem at all. Those are LED fixtures from Costco when they were on sale. I'd bet the whole assembly doesn't weigh 3#. It was a piece of cake. They are rated for flush mount, so I drilled 2 holes in the housing and screwed them into the trusses. They are so light I found (when I missed the truss) the screw would actually hold them in the sheet rock. I want to get the DC ducting in place before I install any more. Another advantage to these lights is the low current draw. In the place with flourescents, I had to have at least 2 circuits and multiple switches to carry the load....with these I have one switch that does the does the all.

Yes , I had to do 2 circuits for my fluorescent ,now I am slowly changing over to the LEDs. Mine are all hung on chains so I put hooks in the joist, because the 6"diam. DC ducting was in before the lighting. I ran surface conduit and 4X4 duplex boxes every 8' and just plugged in the fixtures.
