    Shop update... Update # 2

    Update # 2

    ...and we have lights, and more importantly, HVAC!!!




    I'm completely shocked at how bright these 4 lights are. Honestly don't know that I"m going to need any more. Time will tell when I get everything finished up. 4' LED 5000k each from Hyperikon.



    Been a little while since I posted anything. Been busy with work and around the farm.

    I have the electrician coming out tomorrow [Friday]. I have pulled most of the wires. Have 4, 4' 5000k LED lights to install on the first round. Balance will have to wait for more funding. We will pull the wires for the rest so it will be easy to just hook them up.


    Mini-Split is here and ready to install! I realized yesterday [oh crap] that I needed a completed wall to install said HVAC unit on, so I put in the insulation, and covered it with black plastic for vapor barrier and to help disguise the cracks between the 1x8 boards. I had to leave a small section open to cut thru the wall for power, drainage and HVAC lines.

    I'll fill that in and tape up the vapor barrier when we finish up, then install the balance of the boards.

    So, what do you think about the boards and all their unevenness? I don't think they are too bad. BTW, I soaked them good in Boracare.

    I think the boards look fine. Still an upgrade over most wall material.

    I agree, I don't mind the boards at all. Once you start hanging cabinets and tools on the wall you won't even notice the small imperfections. I look forward to more updates! Also, what split system did you go with?

    Thanks! I got a Pioneer Unit off of Amazon. 18000 BTUs and I think about 17-18 SEER. May be a little oversized for my application but it was only a few hundred more than then next size down, so I figured why not.

    It had lots of good reviews, although I'm somewhat a skeptic about online reviews. [They can only show ya what they want ya to see, right?]

    Wall boards look fine to me. They show a lot more character than the osb I used on my shop walls.
    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.

    I like it David! You're well on your way to making wood shavings and saw dust.

    I like your board walls. They add a rustic wood shop feel and look much better then my OSB walls. Besides, if you are working on a project and run out of lumber, you can borrow some from your wall and replace it when time allows.

    You've put a lot of thought and planning in on this build and it shows. Looking real good.

    I think the boards look great. I used rough cut pine boards in my shop, including the ceiling. Haven't regretted it yet.

    That first step is the hardest. It gets a bit easier after that.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    If it will help, I have four single tube 4' fixtures or four double tube 4' fixtures. All are used but in good shape. Each has a multi-volt ballast that will work on 100 to 277 volts. These will work with conventional T8 tubes or LED retrofit tubes. And if you need I can supply either style tube.

    For free as long as you agree to pay it forward when you have something that will help another.
