Been hanging insulation & putting more 2x4's up for the wall tin.  A few minutes tomorrow will finish all the insulation & wall tin will start going up.  Decided after putting up some temporary porcelain incandescent light fixtures with 300 watt bulbs to just go with that when the time comes for lighting rather than fluorescent.  Always having issues with expensive ballasts & other stuff.  Yes, it burns a little more wattage, but these 300 watt bulbs crank out the light.  I have two 300 watt bulbs, then two 100 watt pigglies, and we have plenty of light in there.  But when I do the permanent wiring, I will go with a total of nine 300 watt bulbs with each line of 3 lights on a separate switch.  It won;'t be too long before LED bulbs will become affordable anyway.  After this cup of coffee it's silage time.  Then after supper Teresa leaves to spend the night at the hospital with her Mom.  I don't sleep well when she's not here.

Since Teresa is with her Mom at the hospital for the night, I went back to the new shop for 2 &1/2 hours.   Made for a 14 hour day, but got a lot done.  Hung the last 2 sections of insulation (22 running feet), then got the last of the wall stringers nailed in over the insulation.

 

Tomorrow will be putting up some more F-channel, then putting up metal wall sheeting.

If I had that shop I know I would get to spend a lot of time in there. Wife would throw my pillow and blanket at me and tell me to spend the night with "allis".

We have a few things placed in our minds, but once the metal is up & the floor is open, then we'll figure out where things will go.

 

Today was a good day.  Below are yesterday's pic & today's pic of the same end of the shop.

I had to put just one ceiling sheet on to see how it will look, and to test the sheet rock jack.  It works awesome!

I'm just glad we bought all this metal back when milk prices were higher or we'd be crap out of luck finishing this shop.  It's still gonna take several $'s to buy wiring supplies and all the little things, but I hope we can swing it when the time comes.

 

Winter must be coming nearer it's end, as geese have been flying north by droves today.
