no previous part Part 1 of The New Work Shop series Part 2: Sorry no pictures yet but here is where I'm at »

I started this about 11 months ago but we had some obstacles to maneuver around along the way. First was getting the electric in. 100AMP service then insulation to the walls and put up 5/8” fire code sheet rock, then the lighting.

Now I am putting up the ceiling, yea I know it should go up before the walls but I am putting up a 12” X 3/4” plywood boarder around the walls right to the ceiling so it makes no difference once its sealed and painted. When that parts done I will post the photos but here is where its at now.

Well its back to the shop after a lot of traveling I hope to get these shelves done soon and start on the tile then the big job, building kitchen cabinets I have a tax id now so I can go to a supply house near me that only sells to contractors and you have to at least have a sales tax certificate to get be able to buy there at all so I am looking for some good pricing as well. Florida is strange with all the rules and license laws they have.

Missing the pictures, any chance you can fix ‘em?

What’s the purpose of the plywood border? I’ve got a french cleat all the way round my shop just down from the ceiling, and it makes hanging shelves and cabinets and what-have-you way easier.

The border is to hang templates from Dan I try to save them and they will be out of the way till I need to use them again. Today I just finished up the cribbing on the ceiling so tomorrow I will get the electric done and start on getting the insulation finished. I think it will be next month before the sheet rock is up and everything painted.
I have not decided where to put my cabinets yet but french cleats will be used.
I see no problem with the photos?
Thanks

Ah, I’m having some wacky networking problems today, the lack of photos must be due to that.
