Looking good, George. Be careful not to blow the place down with those fans!

Got the rest of the electrical boxes and conduit up for the rest of my lights last night. Start pulling wire tonight. It's not too hot down on the floor but it's pure hell up high out of the air ciculation. Hopefully I can finish up there toniite and then start on the plugs down low.

Default sealing the walls

Got started yesterday putting the galvinized on the inside. Had to make 3/8" spacers of plywood to go behind the 1x4 strips because the insulation was thicker than the studs. I think this is going to work good and I think I am going to have enough to do all the walls.

Dang, that's a big shop, gagiii. Everytime you post a new picture, it looks bigger than the last time.

Those sheets are 10' long so that gives you some perspective to the height and there is 10' between each of the posts. As i've said before i just built it to fit the material that I aquired.

Your new palace is looking really good. Funny how color affects your perspective of things. I was looking at the pictures of the new overhead lighting and thinking how cool and inviting it looked up there! I like the galvanized sheeting.

got the rest of the sheet metal on the inside over the weekend and started putting up the conduit and boxes on the walls. My nephew came by to help Sunday and on the 4th, and we got nearly all the wires pulled and the breaker boxes and the meter base and weather head put up. the 'lectric boys are suppose to hook me to the pole Monday or Tuesday of next week. I've got a persimmon tree that's got to come down first. I'll try to get some more pics tonite or tomorrow. I'm sure ready to move all my "junk" in and the first project is to build my back sliding door. Then I can lock everything up in one place.
