    Hello all, are there any contractors here or anyone that would know how many lights i would need for the 30x40 by 10ft tall shop i am building. I Would like it to be well lit and plan on using the high output 8ft fluorescent lights. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    well my guess is, if you say 8' and mean length.. i would say two for the 30' section long ways, and one every 2 feet so 2x20=40??
