Default Setting up Shop in Dayton (aka Cholla's Retreat)

Been chomping at the bit to get this set up. Here is what I started with. Detached unfinished 2 1/2 car garage at about 500 sq ft. with 9' 4" high ceiling.

Insulation is next. I was originally going to put new (er) equipment, cabinets, lighting, etc., but decided to mix things up a bit (note the odd installation of my 100 amp panel, in front of wall instead of within it - at least it has a panel).....

I have really enjoyed reading/seeing everyone's contributions to these Garage threads. They helped me with the many choices I needed to make. Drywall's next with a ittle help from some friends. Last shot is of the highly sophisticated intercom system to be connected to the main house.....

Great job on the fans and lighting! I've had my eye on some 1940's fans in our machine shop.....one day they will be coming home with me!
