« Part 2: Now the interior Part 3 of My workshop series Part 4: It has been 4 months, but much progress »

The electrician finished the rough electrical and the city inspection was passed. This morning he filled in the trench between the house and the workshop. I had him put in a cable TV coax in case I add a TV some day. So, I now have a 90 amp circuit to the workshop with all of the 110 and 220 volt circuits I will need. I am also putting in many T-8 lighting – as I get older I need more light.

Also, the drywall ceiling was installed yesterday. They should be finished in a few days and ready for paint.

Next is the blown-in cellulose insulation. Then wall paneling and floor.

Jim, it sounds like you are almost ready to start wheeling some tools in there. Progress pictures are going to be nice to see.
