Wherever you think your most used/favorite bench will be, double the outlets. I started with 2, and now am up to 4. Coffee maker, phone charging station, handy Milwaukee tools, low volume radio, etc.

Don't forget to put ceiling outlets in for garage door openers. If your door is 10' tall set the outlet back from the door opening about 11' and about 16" off center so it doesn't interfere with the motor mount hardware.

Add a ceiling outlet right at your lift leg so you can hang a retractable extension cord...keeps cords off the floor. This is also a good place for a retractable air hose...don't forget to add mounting blocking between the trusses before you install the ceiling.

Only install 10 duplex outlets max per 20 amp circuit and you should be fine.

The 220v circuit needs to be sized per the welder name plate. If the welder is a future thing, install an empty 3/4" conduit from the panel to the location and pull the wire later. The 3/4 conduit will handle 30 or 50 amp circuits when the time comes...

Yesterday I got a good start on sheeting in the walls. I had 4 full sheets of OSB and a number of remnants form sheeting the roof. That material was enough to close in the shop wall between the breezeway and the house. I still need to cut in the area around the truss to close off the shop ceiling.

I will figure the material needed to sheet the front and rear walls, I also want to add a window to the rear wall. I will buy a roll of house wrap this week, I have never used it before so that will be a learning curve too. Things are finally coming together and I'm really looking forward to having a real shop to work in.

Looking good Craig!! What's the height of the ceiling?

The ceiling is 12 ft 1.5 in. I had to have the extra height to stand the lift up or take it down. The lift required 142.5 in for clearance, the additional 3 inches is from the double top plate required by code.

I continued work on the walls over the weekend. I closed in the front wall and added house wrap over the OSB, I am working on this a little at a time. I added some OSB to the back wall and now need to frame in the area for the window. I bought a 32" X 36" window, I had thought of going larger but didn't want to sacrifice the wall space as the workbench will be located in that area. Once I complete the last section of framing and move the shed I will add a second window of the same size.

I have also started wiring the quad box outlets, I'm using hospital grade receptacles with stainless steel face plates. I am using Romex so as not to need conduit.

Some pictures of my progress.

Making progress!

I hope you got the hospital grade receptacles for free as they cost a fortune...

We always install the receptacles with the ground down so when the cord starts to pull loose from the wall the ground tang is the last one to loose connection, not the first.
