Well a two man framing crew showed up at my place at 5:30 AM. They framed, sheeted and braced the wall’s for trusses and were out of my yard by 2:30 PM. That’s pretty impressive if you ask me. Now comes my job of trying to figure out how I will lay out my big power tools, so I can come up with a plan for the wiring.

That is going to be great! I was wondering about the floor too. Also, how big is it going to be?

Welcon, how do you sleep at night with all this excitement? :D

If you need assistance with shop layout, Grizzly has an online tool you can use for free to give you an idea for tool placement, workflow, etc.

Regarding wiring, I had ceiling outlets installed. I placed one behind the jointer, to the right of the TS and over the right end of the workbench. These locations work well for me. FWIW

It doesn’t take long when you have a good crew working.

for electrical put in twice as many outlets as you think you need. I put in 110 outlets every 4 to 5 feet around the perimeter about 48 inches up. The 220 I put several in approx. where I thought I would need them and a couple in the ceiling also. the 220 outlets on the walls i put in at 8’ up. Makes it dificult to get the wrong plug in the outlet.
