    When mud on the walls is a good thing

    Things are moving right along. I have hired out the taping and mudding of the drywall. These guys are so much faster than I would be. That part sure is nice. Writing them a check is the painful part.

    The picture below shows the main double door that is used to enter the shop.

    This shows a smaller single door to the right of the main door. It will be a storage room.

    Plumbing was boxed in on the ceiling.

    I plan to have a workbench in front of the window.

    This is shows the finishing room. It also has double doors.

    Looking into the finishing room.

    The taping isn't done yet. Once that is done, there will be painting. Then lighting, floors, doors, machine placement and dust collection.

    Jeremy,
    That's coming along really well. A coat of paint will make such an improvement.

    You may want to reconsider a workbench in front of the window. Especially if the sun hits that window. Back light doesn't work well. Try working there and you will see what I mean. JMO

    That is going to be an awesome space!
    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Window without direct sunlight works but absolutely not with direct sunlight.

    I found that louver type blinds that allow light through when closed work to get rid of the glare of direct sunlight and still allow the brightness in. The kind you get at wallmart for 5 or 6 bucks work fine.

    I don't expect direct sunlight to be a problem with that window. I'll be sure to keep that on my radar though.

    About 1100 sqft or so counting the finishing room. A nice upgrade from the last shop which was 361 sqft.
