I just wired my shop here in Missouri and where I live there is NO CODES. Boo on them. Anyway I ran all of my electric with the 12GA wire in conduit. I also ran recepticals completely around the shop using 2 circuits for each one and wired every other plug on each of the two circuits. Also my advise on lighting is use the 0 degree ligjhting. That way youi won’t have any flickering. I got mine at Lowe’s and they were $67. per light plus the 8’ bulbs. And I ran each run of lights on it’s own circuit. I have had no problem since I wired it that way. Also when you turn on each run of lights the first time LEAVE THEM ON for at least 24 hours. That was advise I got from an electrician. Don’t forget to post pictures of your progress.
