They’re used in timber framing. You might

I looked into them when I was planning to build a timber frame a few years ago. They require specialized knowledge to install properly but are very efficient. Also expensive. Running electrical and plumbing in your outside walls will be a challenge, especially in a shop where you need many recepticles.

I was thinking electrical would be surface mounted with metal conduit. and many 4 outlet boxes. No Plumbing.

Long time back when finishing the garage I am working in now many on here said OUTLETS OUTLETS OUTLETS. SO i put in many four plug outlet boxes about every 8 feet. Should of put in 4 outlet boxes every 2 feet! LOL!

I looked into them when I was building my log house. I wanted to use them for the roof. They were prohibitively expensive, but they sure would have saved some time.
