Great question I was thinking about it a lot and I might put a tent over it.

Yesterday was sheet rock day! Campbell thought I would be up for doing overhead hanging of the boards. Was not for me. He called a buddy and they got it in. I worked on the electric while they hung the boards. Well worth the money spent hiring Robert. I mounted the 30 3 watt LED lights, plenty bright. Next is the walls. Getting there. Winter is here, first snow of the year. dorf dude...

LOL no, ive read every single page. I just figured you wouldnt trust the tent to not get a tear or hole and then leak into your nice drywall and all. I think I would line the top with tin and then recover it with the tent

I took the last couple days off and have been busy. Campbell has been kicking @ss. Sheet rock is 95% done, windows are in, doors are in. Just waiting for a price quote on the big garage door. It sure hold's the heat well. We have an extreme echo problem. I'm thinking about hanging hats from the cross bracing cables. Send me your local hats. I have room for about 200. That should knock down the echo for sure. Here are progress pic's. The last pic is where the work bench will go, sockets up high. Getting there. dorf dude...

Question concerning the 3w LEDs. What brand? If you have used other lights in similar application, how do they compare? How are they mounted, just hanging? Are they all on one switch?

These are from a firm called Kwazar, Polish. They are Warm White, Cold White is too blue for my taste. They clip into the holes with spring loaded fingers. The beauty of LED's is they don't get hot. No clearance worries. I have LED's in the house but not sure of the brand. I tried a Philips spot but it was too red in color. Yes they are all on 1 switch. Total draw is 90 watts. Not bad for complete lighting. When I put the work bench in I will probably will add a few more. Thanks for following. dorf dude...
