Barn is getting to the point where I need lights. Anyone have any experience? I want to light it up good. But I also plan to put a light over the work bench, and a few on the wall by the hoist. Not looking to break the bank, but hoping to light it up good.

In my 40x60 shop right now i have 2- eight foot led lights from menards. I believe they Are 8xxx lumens. That was temporary 3 years ago. I have 12 Costco 4' led lights in the 3200 lumen flavor for final. They will be 4 of those in each of my bays. The 8' lights will go over my work benches at that point.

I have six 22k lumen and three 28k lumen lights in my 30x50x14. The 22k are from rural king $90 a piece (they have 15k for $40 Real Work Lighting™ 15000 Lumen High Bay Swivel Light - 89-909-0204). The 28k are hyperlites from Amazon $120 a piece. All of them are dimmable, however they use a special dimmer switch that is pretty pricey. The rural king lights are not as intense and blinding to look at compared to hyperlites.

I have 8 T8 fixtures in my 30x32 work space with 14' ceilings. Each fixture is four 4' bulbs, 2 rows end to end to make 8' fixture.

I have looked into converting to LEDs, but it's good enough that I haven't taken the time. I've been trying to wait out if the ballast removal bulbs or the the direct conversion are the long term solutions.

Gun room, enclosed trailer, shipping container, and wood shop all have HF 4' LEDs no problems

I installed 6 of them in my dad's 36x60 garage and it is like walking into a tanning bed but that is ok the old man can't see shit even with the lights on.

My chicken coop got the cheep Menards 4' LED and no problems with that one also.
