Construction Of The Tying/gear Shed Has Started.

#66
Progressing along as time allows.
Ceiling/attic access finished. One good lesson...make sure you put the 4x8 sheets above the rafters BEFORE they are all set in place! I ALMOST screwed up here until a friend brought this brilliant fact to my attention.
Got a great deal on 6 6" (shallow) IC light cans INCLUDING decorative rings/inserts off eBay for about $73 with UPS 1 day shipping.
2 major home improvment stores here wanted $16-$18 each, plus another $7-$9 for the inserts/finish rings + tax.. One store told me there was no such thing as a IC shallow can! "IC" means insulation can come in contact with the can, "Non IC" cans have to have a 4" space between the can and insulation.
My savings was about 50% buying of eBay.
Hoping to finish the electrical Monday. Insulation and dry wall up next.

Electrical roughed in and passed city inspection on Tuesday. Have a total of 11 wall outlets inside, two in the overhead and one exterior.
6 ceiling lights are on a dimmer switch and separate switch for 2 attic lights.
Picked up the stack of R19 insulation batts for 2x6 ceiling studs for a mere $20 from Home Depot...all open bag pieces! BIG savings!

Been stymied trying to get fiber optics from the house to the shed.
Hopefully, Verizon will get it done tomorrow.
Been suffering with "shingles" so it really holds me back.
Outside trim is finished and the thru-wall AC has been installed.

Lots of counter-sinking nails, caulking, etc. before painting.
With the fiber optics in, I can finish the insulation and get to the drywall.
Best to all!
