Today I framed up the south wall and added some permanent outlets. I needed to figure out exactly what I was doing with this wall before I can finish the west wall which is now ready for drywall. I want to run more wires but I need to first move my main bench and sleeping quarters. And that requires storage space to move existing items. I have no storage left, so I need to finish the west wall. Once that wall is finished I can put shelving back, and that means I can move items back to that location. That frees up space which allows that space to be used by items on my main bench. So it is going to be awhile before I can finish up wiring.
One thing to notice is the horizontal 2x4 near the bottom center. I have placed this stud at this location as a mount point to hang my gas heater. I have ordered a gas outlet box. This will allow me to have a connection and shutoff valve for the natural gas feed to the heater. In the summer I can move the heater into storage. That should be here latter this week. The yellow-orange gas pipe is clearly visible in this picture. It is corrugated stainless steel tubing
and I really like the stuff. It is rigid enough to hold a shape, but flexible enough to easily route around corners. It will eventually all be hidden in the wall.
