Materials were sitting prepped in their yard for the last month while they were trying to find a crew. They finally showed up a day and a half late.

They said they were going to be done in 2 days but showed up friday mid day instead of thursday.  Turns out the crew was out of bakersfield so they got a hotel and worked through sunday evening

Next steps are:

-Apply densifier and sealer to concrete

-Trench for electricity to shop

-Conduit for outlets/lights in building

-Insulation in ceiling

-Lights

-Pallet Racking

-2 post lift

-Frame up office/mezzanine

 

Anyone have any suggestions for lights?  I am looking at the 5,000k color temp 4ft LED lights (basically the fluorescent replacements)

Anyone have a contact for finding a 2 post lift?

Would consider used if it comes with a warranty but primarily looking at new.  I know these things are safety issue so I want it done right.

Tall enough to just open up the roof top tent on the truck.

I ordered 4' led lights off amazon but the problem with the ready to go sets you can only plug 4 in to each other oer switch so what I did is just bought the replacement led tubes and cut out the balasts out of my old florescent lights and wired them for led very easy

Looks great Kris.  A thing to think about the positioning of the lift is that you lose a lot of open space to maneuver vehicles since the posts are in a fixed position.  By moving the lift to the left bay near the office you have 2 unobstructed bays for large projects.  This way if you have a vehicle on tire dollies you can move it all over the shop.

Good point John. Kris, where is your air compressor going to go? Consider building a small shed to house your air compressor outside and attached to the shop to cut down on noise in the shop. Also, and after your final inspection, consider installing a wood stove to heat the shop and/or plan for propane in case you want to install an LPG shop heater. I might be able to get you a killer deal on lighting because I have a friend of a friend who owns a major lighting company. I can connect you so you can get some professional advice on the lighting.

Leaning this way now.  Both Jeff's friend and Rob recommended challenger lifts so it looks like I will be going with one. I figure I have till the last minute once delivered to decide on final location.

Compressor will go outside in a small lean-too after final.  

Also after final, insulation and wood stove. Maybe a 3 ton heat pump off my buddies roof when he updates his house.

My brother-in-law is a lighting designer so he is putting together a package for me at cost. Obligated to use family in this case.
