Not really a job but it for doing jobs in my shop. Finally replaced the last high pressure sodium vapor lamps in the shop. Been there about 16 year and this is in the storage area which I use as an assembly area on occasion. The main area of the shop was replaced with T5HO fluorescents quite some time ago. 6 bulb hi-bays that produce about 30K lumens.

This is a single UFO style LED hi-bay that produces 35K lumens. It claims 42K but if you do the math of 140 lumens/watt and 250 watts you get 35K, not 42K. But it might be anyway because there are 300 LEDs and they are either .9 watts (270w) or 1 watt (300w)

Every so often I think about those first lights you replaced, and what an incredible difference that was. Good times.

Hey, that's pretty clean for a storage area. I'd be embarrassed to post shop at this point. Storage is basically where I work now...

That's because we had to get a 7 yard loader into the area so I could get up to the 26' ceiling. That machine is HUGE. 11' wide bucket through a 12' door.

And I pushed a broom right before the picture. Not for the picture, but because the space didn't have all the cabinets on carts in the way. There is no room in the spray room because it's full of all the stuff that should be in the storage area. :D

Yup. Going from two 400 watt sodium vapor lamps to a bunch of fluorescents. I have 28 T5HOs in various configurations in the work side of the shop. At about 4' off the floor directly under the 6 bulb fixture I got 850 lux. Under the LED it was just over 1000 lux.

Finished up soffit and fascia on this today. 3' overhang Glad it is done. Used more ladders on it then have in a long time. Bright side customer paid me $400 more then bid it for. NICE.

Hey. A win, is a win, is a win.

You won. Doesn't matter how you got it, lift or ladder, you won.

Parade of Homes is in a few weeks. Last year was the first year we've not been in the Parade since 2014, because there wasn't one. Can't really take on contracts for 2022, assuming half the stuff on the board with a deposit goes forward, but it's good to stay out in public
