Another Wall... Another Door... and Stringing Copper

I wanted a wall to isolate the car storage from the tool storage but we held off to see if it was really needed. It is... lumber is much cheaper than body work.

Also installed one of the used overhead garage doors from our attached garage renovation into the maintenance bay wall.

Lights, outlets, compressor and welder wiring is next.

Did ya'll know the NEC allows use of 15 amp receptacles in a 20 amp circuit? They do. The UL requires 15 amp receptacles to be built to "pass through" 20 amps. Learned something new... old dogs, new tricks.

You can also see the garage door screen in the last photo. It was only about $100..... I added velcro to the bottom of the door and it attaches there. I like it mostly because you can see out... but folks can't make out what you're doing, or what's in your shop. Yeah, I'm not a very "trusting" soul.

Re: Pole Style Building vs. Stick Building

Got tired of using my big Werner heavy duty A-Frame ladder to access stuff in the loft.. so I built a stairway.

Fun project.

Lots of great storage space under the stairway.
