Another idea for a portable outdoor light is to use some 12v leds lights and a car battery. I have one of the 18” long light bars on an old IV stand with the battery on the bottom for counter weight. Easy to pick up and move wherever you want, bright and lasts quite a while between charges.

I heard there might be a electrical supply shortage so I went ahead and got a Square D Homeline 150 amp panel and mounted it in the laundry room. This will serve strictly the house end of the building with hopefully room to grow if needed.

Attempted to mount the bathroom fan and I lost my hold on it and it fell to the floor. Didn't survive the fall. $90 down the drain.

A small hammer, Gorilla tape and bondo will hold it till you get a new one.

Duct tape will work fine, unless he busted the fan. They are brittle plastic. Looks like the fan housing is cracked. That'll require Gorilla glue.
It's amazing that they want so much for a piece of crap.

The blower housing broke in six different places. Otherwise I'd repair and use it.

Progress at my shop. Neighbor brought over his forestry mulcher and did some quick clean up on my driveway.

Odd. Tried three times to upload pictures and get a error message saying "the page is not displayed because the request entity is too large"
