Electricians added my lights. They are 6-bulb, 4ft, T5 LED fixtures and are super bright. I have 6 in the main part and 2 under the carport. I may end up moving the 2 under the carport to the inside and putting some that are not as bright out front. I feel like bugs will be an issue with all that light.
A pic of 1 light on in the back corner.


Shitty pic, but here are the 2 on out front.


All the underground electricity is in and just waiting on CenterPoint to set the meter. I plan on adding 10 additional outlets higher up the poles for future neon lights and for a TV. Then I can start hanging the plywood and run the shop air.

Looks sweet! Those lights are super bright. Just curious do you know what price difference was going with wood framing over metal?

Thanks and, yeah they are very bright. I dont know the exact cost offhand, but I would say $10k, easy. The foundation/concrete alone is much more than a pole barn.

Been chipping away at hanging the plywood over the past two evenings/nights after i get home from work. The plywood is 5/8". Almost done.





I have about 5 more sheets to put up then some trim at the bottom and corners, then done.

Only one more sheet to go (which i need to buy). I ran out since i used four of them to build a new shelve. I did also start to put down some trim at the bottom. Need to buy about 80ft more to finish it all out. Should be moving in this weekend.

Doug Phillips with Phillips Construction built the shop. I sub'd the concrete out to a local guy. No complaints about Doug at all. They are primarily out of Oklahoma but have build 10+ barns in my area.
