Well i got home last night to (4) new LED shop lights in the garage, and a 100' extension cord. My wife is pretty awesome

So now i have at least temporary lighting in the shop, and man those things are bright! I got them all wired up to a surge protector, so thats my "on/off" switch for the time being, and i have an extension cord running to the shop from the house. Its not ideal, but at least I can go out there and work on stuff now! And it says they light instantly down to 0*F, so hopefully they will work alright this winter. If its that cold i wont be out there working on stuff anyways lol.

Heck yeah! I just installed my 3rd LED Shop Light in my garage and man do I love the amount of light those things put out. Makes working out there a lot more fun, not having to drag a smaller shop light from place to place to actually be able to see things clearly.

I believe they are 2 tube? But they are LED, so I guess they dont really have tubes... They are super bright though. I thought 6 would be good, but 4 seems to be plenty

These are the ones:

I finally got the hardware for the upstairs shower, so thats up and going now, and i put all the outlet and light switch covers on. I still need to replace all of the outlets and switches, since they are old and yellow/brown. But that may be a winter project.

Coming along nicely... Seems like an early winter project would be getting heat in the shop... Can't have the "Baby" freezing.. not to mention can't not be able to work on the Jeep when things come up during the winter.. lol.. The house is coming along nicely...

Can't wait to get a place of my own, so I can pickup some of those LED shop lights like that for mine..

We will have heat in the attached garage before winter. We are going to run power and gas lines to the shop, but it doesnt make sense to heat it until its at least insulated, and that wont happen before winter lol.

Going back to my original statement... priorities are all wrong... LOL... I kid I kid.. that does make sense to take care of the insulation first.. and at least you do have somewhere to do work if need be that will be heated.. And a great house that is done up just the way you want, to enjoy when there isn't any vehicle jobs that need to be done..

We got a ton done this weekend. Were almost ready to have everyone over for the little mans birthday party on Saturday.

I got a bunch or brush cleared up and stacked, and we finally got the railing done, and a bunch of painting, and i hung the rest of the light fixtures. I also swapped out a bunch of bulbs for LEDs. Ive got a bunch to go, but man i like how they look!

We also finally fixed the spot above the microwave where the fan vent goes. Her dad routed a piece of wood and we painted it white, and magneted it on so we can still have access.

Last night I pressure washed the whole outside of the house, and the shop, and the sidewalk/patio and the stairs. I think its safe to say that it hasnt been done in a good 20 years or so. I would like to get a brush and a bucket of soapy water and scrub the shop off, but ill probably worry about that in the spring.
