Don't think I talked much about the electrical. 400 amp service.

Good friend of mine donated a huge panel. It was left over from a commercial job he did. Plenty of room for expansion. About a third of the breakers are "spare" for now. That will change when my son and his wife set up the woodworking shop in the warehouse side.

There is a separate box just for my welder circuit. I bought a Miller Dimensions 452 that can be reconfigured for 208 3 phase from one of the local Vo-Techs. Barely used. It can run two mig guns at the same time, as well as tig welding and stick welding. I figure it will handle more than I can throw at it.

The same friend that gave me the panel also hooked me up with Tommy, a guy who used to work for him. Great guy. Worked for me on weekends for just labor. You can see from his conduit work that he is really conscientious.

I think Tommy is half artist and half electrician.
Everyone who looks at the conduit comments.

That is artwork!! It's great that there are still those who take pride in their work these days!

From day one I have admired the plumbing done on the boiler that heats my attached garage and shop.

Yep, you definitely need to keep Tommy around and have him over once a month for steak dinner. I hope he is helping you with the museum too...

Your tuck pointing looks great too. Doesn't look like the same wall as earlier pics.

Like I said, got the foam insulation done last week. Not much to gripe about here. Guy did a good job, and cleaned up well.

Two inch closed cell, which provides and extra vapor barrier.

Have about two hours worth of tuck point work left on brick.

Got most of the North wall drywalled on Sat.

I have about 2 hours to go on brick work. This job nearly killed me (not literally). I think it was late June when I decided to do it myself. I spent a couple weeks just digging the old soft mortar out. Then I vacuumed all of the loose debris out of the joints. Poor shop vac.

In July temps started getting so high, there was no way for me to work during the day or even in the evening when I got home. So, for four straight weeks, I got up at 4 am EVERY friggin morning (when it was "just" in the 80s) and worked four hours; then headed to the house to clean up and go to the office. On weekends, I would work until about 11 or noon.

By the end of August I ended up with a respiratory condition from hell. No one could give me a reason; didn't seem to be any infection. So I had to lay off a few weeks. I did start wearing a mask when mixing mortar, as it is possible I just breathed in more dust than my system could expel.

Doing OK now. Will also wear a dust mask when I sand the first coat of drywall joint compound. Had a heart / lung scan done yesterday and am anxiously awaiting the results.

Damn, Lynn, you were breathing old, dirty dust from the digging and vacuuming time too. Using a shop vac doesn't trap the fine particles, unless it has a HEPA filter bag in it. I started using one in my shop vac and noticed a big difference in air quality right away.
You be careful...
I hear ya on the heat. We had, yet again, the hottest summer on record with the most days at 100 ever too. We are NOT accustomed to that up here and we get humidity too, which makes getting anything done outside almost unbearable.
