I have to finish the inside and insulate it run wiring although the sub panel is hooked up.

Nice score on the house and shop. One bit of advice for you, though. If your shop has any nails, screws, or shelving left by the former owner, take them down now so you can lay the shop out to your specs. That was the biggest mistake I made. I had nails everywhere, and while they made perfect places to hang extension cords and the like, none of it was where I wanted/needed it. Also, since you are moving in, get rid of the "junk" now because those items that truly are junk will just clutter up a new shop. I've gotten rid of about 3 pickup beds full of old stuff that was for old projects, that had moved 5 times with me. Spring is in the air, you know...

In a while, Chet.
