Talk about a dream come true – a dream for more years than I care to count. And it’s actually becoming a reality now. At the moment (Jan. ‘11) I’m wiring and finishing the walls – still have a lot to do before it’s complete but here’s a few shots of the basics. It’s 24’ X 30’ with a 10’ porch along the front side, insulated, with 4 skylights. The skylights are even better than I had imagined, even on a cloudy day there is hardly any need for additional lighting.
I’m going way over the top on the electric service here, 3 dedicated 20A/220V circuits, a 30A/220V run for my bandsaw, 50A/220 welder branch, 20A/120 outlets all along the walls at 5’ intervals on 5 separate circuits, lots of overhead lighting and switched 15A outlets for spot lighting as needed. While I was running the service to the sub-panel, I even ran a 3-way switch to the house so I can turn on the porch light from there – too cool!
I’ll be updating this once I have some good shots of the interior but I’m awfully proud of this space and wanted to get some pics on here to show it off.
