« Part 3: Join me as I try to work out the details of building a new shop Part 4 of My shop series no next part

I spent the day finishing up the cribbing and putting up the six electrical boxes for the lighting with strain reliefs. Tomorrow I will start on getting the insulation done then its up to my help when I will get the sheet rock up. I have a crown molding job to do which will take all of next week so it will be at least three weeks before I can start on the sheet rock. I hope to bring the sheet rock lift back with me from the Baltimore job.



This one is a shot of the mess I have to work around.

Its up and almost done.

Looks like it is slowly coming together! Looking at your shop brings deja vu for me, last summer I was in the midst of turning my garage into a shop; rewiring, insulating, drywalling, it looked about the same as your picture. Not something I want to repeat any time soon! You’ll be glad once it is done and you have your shop back to work in…

One man’s mess is another’s tidy shop. Good luck with your ceiling.

ONE year and ONE day later. The insulation is all in and ready to pick up the sheet rock and lift next week.

Unsanded and unpainted, I think they came out good.

I returned from Baltimore after spending 4 days cutting and installing crown molding. We used miters on all the outside corners including a 60 t0 45 degree outside corner. All others were coped. I brought back the Sheetrock lift but may not get to use it until I return from San Diego.
