The floor is still drying. Plus a clear coat is still needed so all of the machines are still in my house.

Get that door insulated and then get your tools back in there ASAP.
If you're not fast enough, someone will try to park their car in there.

Austin - That looks great!  While it is still empty paint that ceiling with Bright White gloss paint too.  It will make more light bounce down onto what you are working on and it will be easier to clean later Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

As Tom mentioned, painting the ceiling makes a huge difference.
My ceilings are 10' and the light from overhead florescent fixtures just don't cut it unless there is a reflective surface there to help.
