Finished up the ground work this morning. The rocks removed are only about 1/3 the rest went back under ground. Had to get some clean top soil from out back to fill the voids. I'll let this settle a couple weeks and place another load of top soil to level it out. I'll see if I can get a Electrician out next week to make the final connection.

I think you got a few rock's!  Looks like you have the beginning's of a rock wall.

 

I did mine the easy way, I got my son to dig the trench. lay the wire and fill it back in and smooth it over.  I just had to make the connections.  That part he will not have anything to do with.

More parts needed, I need to install a Ground bar inside the breaker box and pound a 8' ground outside and connect it to the Ground buss bar. This way I have Hot, Netrual, Ground.

Looks good. You're almost ready to fire up the open sign.

 

A few posts back you said you blew a string through the conduit.

I've never heard of it done that way. We use a shop vac (like Cat said)

Tie a light plastic bag to your fish string, put it in the conduit, and suck

it through to the other end.

Blowing worked fine also. I tied a peanut curnal left over from sealing the bottom panels. It went through just fine.

I have power to the inside panel! :dancingbanana:  Breakers are "off" for now, nothing to power yet. The electriction even had 4 industral T-8 (new in the box) shop lights that te let me have at $30.00 each. These look like $100.00 units, very heavy guage. I picked up wire, chain and "S" hooks, switches boxes, and one quad outlet to start. I should have light tomorrow and be able to roll up the extension cords. Too dark to do anything tonight, but you can bet I'll be out as soon as the sun comes up.

Looks like some nice units.  This was the stage I enjoyed most building my shop.  Putting the inside together and planning on how I wanted everything, of course with me that is a working project. :D   Have fun setting up your shop.

HDWildBill this is the part I enjoy too. Got going as soon as there was daylight, and finished before dark. It is amasing what light does to make this feel more like a shop instead of a shed.

That's nice and bright in there now, but why did you put the lights

directly under the skylights?

There are no sky lights. There are vents in top of the lights. I looked again and it does look like sky lights, Cool. :rolling:

I would have fell through the "sky lights" when I installed the Galvalume roof panels. :angel:
