    45acp's 30x40 shop rebuild

    Stolen from some other place... going to document ongoing project here

    late 2017, we bought a house with a 30x40 shop out back. Shop was divided down the middle with 30x20 work area and 30x20 1 bedroom apartment the homebuilder lived in while building the house. Its stick built, but none of the apartment shit is load bearing so it was an easy tear out.

    The bad- one damn door and its a freaking 7x16, and 9ft ceiling. Fucking dirt track guys. Click image for larger version

      So I'm tearing out the apartment, and leaving the bathroom. Its got a washer/dryer hookup in it, water heater, shower, etc and will be a nice junk storage room plus quiet space for air compressor. Its on the front, so no adding a 2nd door... BUT if this place turns into forever home ill build a bigger bath/storage off the side and tear this out adding a second door. Bathroom is 9x14. Click image for larger version

            So this is going to be part shop, part kids play area. Fridge and cabinets around it are staying. TV in that area so the kids will have cartoons to not watch. Had access to a bunch of leftover flooring, so I made a goofy looking wall. Click image for larger version

              Had a couple of leftover light switches, so I ran 2 leds up in the attic to help with storage and future wiring etc. Holy shit i should have done this on day one. Top 5 best mod ever. Also, I did a little strip of osb down the middle of the trusses which made it easier getting around up there. I also floored an 8'x8' area around the attic door.

                  Painting everything white, getting every last little lumen out of the leds

                  If you have bare OSB in your shop/garage... PAINT IT. Click image for larger version

                    Cheated with the wiring up by the door and built a stick out with removable cover for the switches and plugs. "Crown molding" is all 3/8 plywood and hides the gaps nicely. Click image for larger version

                        Sometime last year, I finally ran some 220 so I could use the real welder. You guys would be proud... i actually did it all proper-like with one run from the panel and used conduit like the grownups Click image for larger version

                          Last bit of wall painting, all I have left is that far right corner. It used to be the bedroom closet, and is going to be some big ass built-in shelves. Click image for larger version

                            LED ghettoness- like most, these hang with chains and S hooks. But I have stupid 9ft ceilings, and want them surface mount. Upon inspection, there's micro wires running through the main center channel. So, shake light while laying on its side, and drill holes through the body while praying to the copper gods you don't hit a wire. Boom, now there's 3" deck screws holding them to the ceiling. I did all 16 of them without hitting a wire. Click image for larger version

                              One more thing... the one light directly behind the garage door opener and the one at far left of the pic are separate wired direct to the opener. Pop the door at night with everything off, and 2 of these are plenty enough light to see well, and a million times brighter than the 100w equivalent led bulb in the opener.
