To clarify…by bulbs I mean LED tubes that are replaceableDefinitely go LED but stay away from the ones that have integral diode strips. When they go bad there’s nothing to replace, you gotta pitch the whole fixture. I would suggest fixtures that accept tube style “bulbs” like the old fluorescent style. You’ll have much more flexibility with brightness and lumens and have the ability to replace them should they go bad. For me, 4000k is the sweet spot for barn/shop lighting. I’d suggest anywhere from 100-150 lumens per sq ft in a barn. This varies depending on if you have finished ceilings and walls which will help reflect the light vs unfinished which will absorb more of the light. You can play with layout as your needs dictate.
I'm gathering supplies for outlet runs while waiting on the final building inspection. I hope to be pulling wire this weekend. I have temporary lighting, so no big rush.How big a hurry are you in? Bridgeport has just what Issac suggested and they're like $25 a piece. I can snap a pic of them tonight or tomorrow. I bought 4 for my barn, but it's only 900SF. I think they're 2,500 lumens, but could be 4K.
I'll run over there today and see what they still have in stock. Could hillbilly them to Strouds.I'm gathering supplies for outlet runs while waiting on the final building inspection. I hope to be pulling wire this weekend. I have temporary lighting, so no big rush.
