Look at all that light. Did you buy a pair of sunglasses to go with those?
Do they work off of one switch or did you split them up for utility light and critical light?

You’ll always be thankful of the good light. Ah.. particularly if you older. It makes a world of differenct for me.

I guess you wanted to be able to say
“Let there be light”, flip a switch, and have it be done, look at it and say “That is good!”
Very nice shop!

Wow. What a great platform on which to build a shop.
Looks like I’ve gotta’ throw in a couple more circuits, a bunch more 2-tube fluorescent fixtures, and a few gallons of white paint over my concrete….
Lemme’ know when you’ve covered the roof with solar panels ;-)

I am almost 62 and I was tired of working in a semi-dark garage. I found a web site that calculated how much light you need in a shop environment. For my size shop, adjusted for my older eyes, the lighting I put in was the calculated lighting needed.I just have one light switch for the main room. I may label it “let there be light.” The electrician did run separate lines from each row of lights all the way to the switch if I ever decide I want to be able to turn them on one at a time.The lights are T-8 florescent fixtures that are very energy efficient.In fact, I planned the whole shop to minimize energy usage. The 2×6 walls are insulated to over R17. The windows and door are efficient. The HVAC is an efficient heat pump.
