The only draw back about having your shop in the basement is that it's power off /light out at 6:00 PM and not b/4 9:00 AM,, I can almost hear the BOSS now ,say, turn that crap off I can't hear the TV..
That is the beauty of our house, When we built it in 03, we were able to insulate all interior walls plus the contractor insulated the basement ceiling. Once I put in a dropped ceiling ,loosing only a couple of inches, with sound dampening tiles it will be quiet up in the master. As a matter of face that may be why she agreed to go from the garage to the other side, our bedroom is directly above the down garage.
I must admit I was surprised when she agreed so quickly to move the shop to that part of the basement. We were going to make the basement like a mother-in-law suite. But both of our parents have passed so we don't need a suite. As a matter of fact when we were talking about is today, she mentioned that she really didn't,t need a second kitchen to keep up.
I realize that this really is a dream come true, it may, will, take years to get it where I would like it but I'm not going anywhere anyway so I can take my time and enjoy the journey. I will of course show progress as it is made, and I am very fortunate to have fellow woodworkers as close as Bob and Joe and anouther Bob down in Douglasville to share it with locally.
One thing I forgot to mention is that all wiring will be 12/2 with 20amp breakers all GFCI protected. This is more than is required, but doing this I can use any outlet to run any tool I have. I have a 200amp service that has 5 double breaker spots so with running doubles I can break the rooms into 10 separate circuits. I plan to do every other outlet on a different circuit so if I were to run two machines at once it would not trip a breaker from the load. As a matter of fact in the area I will be using there will be five 20amp circuities. This will cost a little extra but will be worth it in the long run. The ceiling fixtures will all run off two 15amp services.
I appreciate all of your comments and if your ever in the Atlanta area, I am sure that the four of us here in the area would welcome a visit.
