Well my turn with the electrician was this weekend. We hung the panel and other peripheral devices required to work towards the CO. Tomorrow I will call for the rough in inspection.

While I was waiting my turn I sealed the bottom of the metal with Great Stuff and silicone. Then I laid down the floor plate. After that I installed a 2x8 horizontal girt at the 8’ level all the way around the building for added rigidity in the walls. You can see both the plate and the girt in this picture.

Also my concrete guy finally moved the extra load of gravel from my back yard.

I have also been busy inside the shop. I borrowed some scaffolding from a fellow mudder which facilitated the installation of 4 additional high bay LED’s, my 208v circuit and then 12 double gang 110 receptacles. I have the lift installation tentatively set for 15 January.

Love the old pump. We had that same unit on our farm when I was growing up for diesel fuel. Love the fridge too but watch your power meter if you plan on using it. A friend of mine that owns an HVAC company has an old CocaCola ice box. He keeps it unplugged unless he’s having a party. Says he can watch the meter speed up when he turns it on.

Why do you have 15 amp and 20 amp receptacles in the same box? Are they on the same circuit? 20 amp circuit?
