Layout room close to completion
The new layout room that I have been planning and talking about is now a reality. Over the Labor Day weekend I "Labored" my butt off working on it. The new room is essentially complete. Last week I got my building permit and purchased the materials needed for the new layout room. Saturday I got the garage all cleaned out and ready for construction. Sunday I managed to get the main wall dividing the garage framed and sheet rocked on one side, the layout room side still needs wiring prior to sheet rock. Monday the garage door and framing were ripped out and a new wall built and sided. I still have to finish tearing out the old sheet rock on the former garage door wall so that I can wire that wall as well. I made alot of progress this weekend and I am very excited about getting this project under way. I still have alot to do yet before benchwork can get underway. I have to get my lighting for the room installed as I only have an unshaded lamp for light right now. I plan to put in can lights for the room lighting if all goes well this week I can get them installed as well. I'm still not completely certain what kind of lighting that I will install for the layout. I was thinking about a mix of flourescent and incandescent, if anyone has any ideas I'm open for suggestions. I didn't think to take before photos, my bad. I will take some picts when the room is complete though. Thats all for now, I will post updates as progress continues.
Edit: I am close to finished but am unable to upload the photos that I have taken, Help Please!!!!!!
