Almost done with the electric. I forgot to replace the outlet for the garage door..duh. But the walls are about half done with sheet rock. Because the ceilings are slightly over ten feet I left the top 18” for after the ceiling is up so the seams don’t crack after they are taped, not that its a big deal. I may put a 1”X6” or 8” around the perimeter at the ceiling for some place to hang templates to keep them safe and out of the way.

Bob the Shop is looking good.

For your garage door and vent wiring pull a line from your breaker box
If it is getting full use a SINGLE POLE DUEL CIRCUIT BREAKER

I still have 5 open spaces but I still mat use the piggy back breaker to keep them options open. What can I do to make it easier to pull new lines later on after the ceiling and walls are up.

Bob,

For the walls either have an extra hole drilled in the top plate (joist)
Or if you have some room in the existing holes that’s ok use them. Run a pull string (nylon like the stuff used for laying block strong).

Note: fill unused holes with a little expansion foam.
Adding pull strings are great
