I am building a workshop and putting in the lighting and wiring currently.
I have two lighting circuits planned for my highbay area. I am waffling back and fourth on what the layout of the circuits should be. The high bay area is about 30 x 35 with the garage doors (2) on the eaves side. Please provide your opinions on what you would prefer.
The two choices I can envision are:
One circuit over each garage door bay
One circuit on the back half of the shop and one on the front (garage door) side of the shop.
The work benches will be along the back half for the most part.
If I have the garage doors open, the lighting over them will be obscured. So I can see a benefit from lighting the back half and then switching on the front half if the doors are down. Also the back half lit will illuminate all the work benches.
I can also see working in one bay OR the other and here is the argument for the other lighting configuration.
And then there is the third choice which I have not thought up myself. Looking forward to learning what that might be.
Thanks for your inputs.
