« Part 1: Its starting to look like a real shop Part 2 of The New Work Shop series Part 3: Next stop is to pick up 21 sheets of 5/8" sheet rock. (Photos so far) »

Today I finished up putting the last of 68 2”X3”X8’ s up as well as over 100 blocks to keep them stable on the ends. I used up 10 lbs of 3” screws put the cribbing up. I also finished putting all the electrical boxes in, 8 in all. Tomorrow I will work on getting as much insulation up as I can and wire in the lights. I have a job in Baltimore that I will need to stay on location for about a week but when I return I will start bringing in the 5/8 sheetrock and get a date for my son in laws to come help put it all up. Photos next time I promise.

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.

Now you need to get Billy to bring down his lift and I’ll bring my auto taper and boxes and we’ll have her knocked out in no time…............
If only you were closer….

Okay. I’ve waited 2 days for the pics – where are they?? GaryL is right. If you were a bit closer, say between Gary and me, we’d have this done in no time. Might cost you some prime-time fishing, though.

I am between you guys, Just a bit East of Gary and North of you. LOL The fishing is good here we have a 550 acre lake that they are begging us to take bass from 8 to 10 pound bass and the Chesapeake bay has some big Rock fish 15 to 50 pounds. If you can get over this way your welcome to stay. I will get the pictures up tomorrow night.
