So much respect for people who drywall for a living!!!

 

So I got into the shop a bit later in the day, but worked until around 9PM-ish.  I was able to get the 2x10 joists up:

I also got the closet for the A/C air handler in:

Then it was time for a break to enjoy the view of the sky behind the shop along with my usual afternoon enhancers:

Then it was time to start arguing with drywall.  I'm terrible at drywall.  I don't like it - it doesn't like me and mad props to anyone who knows how to do this and/or does it for a living!

Here is a quick video walk around:
 

 

I'll get the top on the collector room and finish out the air handler closet as well as run the electrical for the A/C and put a light in the collector closet tomorrow.  Then it's time to just start throwing up the stud walls all along the exterior walls of the shop.

 

I'll probably order the scissor lift tomorrow and see when the A/C guy can come out and get that in.  It's going to be so nice having air in the shop!

I got a little done today, but I didn't get much in the way of pictures.  Most notably, I got the 1st pallet of insulation board I'm going to use to insulate the ceiling.  I'll get some more pics of progress tomorrow!

Today was another one of those days full of spurts and starts.  I was able to almost find all of the Eaton BR breakers I needed.  They are hard to come by right now (so it makes perfect sense that the electrician used them?)  I was able to get some electrical done.  Most importantly, I got the breakers in and cable ran for the A/C unit.  I split the load between the 100A and 200A service panels:

 

This is the 100A service.  The bottom 4 rows were added today:

20210916_170358.thumb.jpg.7f9024f4ff3146dbb52c96530cf42d02.jpg

 

And here is what I have in the 200A box so far  I didn't take a picture after running more wire but you get the idea:

 

20210916_170413.thumb.jpg.df3378073e7d2bc85251665d7b65088b.jpg

 

I also put up some lights in the collector room that run off a switched outlet:

20210915_172914.thumb.jpg.dccf9bfcfa925b55ac47c9fd4b021340.jpg

 

Here is a pic of the insulation I'm going to adding to the ceiling, there are now 2 pallets of this in the shop:

 

20210916_170343.thumb.jpg.4ceff3356465125b83dcdbcff4d6a05a.jpg

 

The scissor lift is getting dropped at the shop tomorrow.  I'm also going to call the A/C guy and see when he can get out and install the 5-ton unit.

 

I am, without fail, working from the shop all day tomorrow.  I still have several hours of day job calls that will take priority, but hopefully between the calls I can get some more stuff done.  I'm hoping to get the rest of the stud walls in along with most of the electrical and start on the insulation/drywall.  As a stretch goal, I would like to maybe get the Laser room studded out.  We'll see how far I get.

So I got to the shop a little before 8AM this morning and this modern marvel of innovation was waiting for me:

I'm about to get the brushes up around the roll-up doors before the sun is beating on that side of the shop!

Got quite a bit done today, but it was a lot of stuff like moving stuff around and getting things off the floor so it's easier to work.  I did get a section of stud wall in, insulated and drywalled.  I forgot how fun fiberglass insulation was.  My skin is still crawling after trying to shower it off.

 

Here are some pics and a recap video:

 

Most of the boxed stuff that's been moved put on pallets and put up high out of the way.  The Crushinator was killing it today

Got the insulation for the ceiling stacked and getting ready to put up some pallet racking:

20210917_160817.thumb.jpg.71376b5180da5b0d62c572feb7bda322.jpg

 

Pulled some of the electrical so it wouldn't be in the way:

20210917_160828.thumb.jpg.625cc3975568d3043d5726ba4b9722f7.jpg

 

Got a small section of stud wall in on the west side of the building:

20210917_163732.thumb.jpg.51313c8e3382b85f4cb95d01e25f831d.jpg

 

Decided to take it up the full height of the wall:

 

20210917_173248.thumb.jpg.2199e300446b1ce7f576c2473217a7c2.jpg

 

Got some drywall in, you can see it in the update video here:

 

 

Slow and steady wins the race right?  I think that's one of Aesop's Fables...

I wouldn't call that progress slow by any means. There's just a lot to do! Keep it up! You'll be done before you know it
