Was very interesting watching his Spec house series. Never seen a house built by white guys before. Our trades are all shades of brown here.

So, is there no finish planned for this area? It looks like bare roof metal, then your purlins and strapping, and now your conduit.

Pulled wire today. Then pulled more wire.
About three quarters of the outlets in the shop are wired now. Half the light locations are wired. Finsihed up some conduit also.

Far as the rest of tge conduit work that is left..

Conduit run from house panel to 200 amp panel in shop

Conduit run for switches by the walk door and to feed a switch that will be in my laundry room for a three way that will control the four lights in the center bay

Two welder outlets. One by the walk door and one by the roll door.

Phase converter conduit runs will be later.

Under the roof will eventually either get fiberglass or spray foam insulation. Probably fiberglass. I can stuff a lot up there.

Finally pulling wire to the main panels.

I need 2" emt to run to the panel in the living area. Pulling 1/0 aluminum wire to feed it. Why is it $50-60 a stick? That's insane... I need 10-14 pieces.
