    Amazing planning was required to do this job so well. Detailed planning, including the J & F channels, the 8ft and 18 ft panels. Glad the scissor lift made the finish work possible, especially since Courtney wasn't available 100%. Please get better soon and stay well both of you.

    Decades ago a friend and I drywalled a ceiling with 5/8" X 12 foot drywall using ladders and a scaffold ... which is one reason why I quit doing drywall.... The metal panels look soooooo much easier. Also, all sympathy to Courtney... it major sucks to work when you are that sick....

    seems to me that if you ever want to get rid of that mis-cut all you need to do is order one piece and install it over the entire section just in reverse and since the metal is so thin you wouldn't be able to see that it's an extra layer....orrr just don't look up. haha. looks great guys! thanks for sharing

Noted in another comment reply about the plans for shelving… Used to visit a motorcycle shop that had a really cool metal “cat walk” around the perimeter over the show room that acted as storage/display for their collection … Really enjoy y’all’s content.

What was a little shocking to me was how (seemingly) perfectly square everything is - ceiling and all - that you didn’t have any slivers of material needing to get at a tiny angle to get everything to fit ‘n finish perfectly. You two are expert carpenters and a joy to watch.

    Looks great. When you factor in the cost of keeping the scissor lift and paint the price gap isn't quite so big. It will make the shop area a little noisier as you found out. Great way to go.
    This is to late for you but might help someone else, when the batteries get low, you can run it plugged in. Was a little surprised you didn't get the drywall side painted while you had it??
    Love the lights
