Pull the wire back to the panel if you can and go new wires and plastic boxes,

starting over with new circuits is always a good idea if you're not sure what feeds what. you could be adding to someone else's mistake which may result in an electrical fire. all circuits in a garage need to be GFCI protected unless it is a hardwired lighting fixture. again quoting fromNFPA 70 which is the NEC.

I guess you missed the part where it's a rental

I'll tell you this though, it's now MUCH better/safer than it was. I have one more box to redo and then I'll be done with the electrical.

I've been meaning to post new pics but I keep forgetting to bring the camera to work. All the dry-wall is done and I rebuilt the large ceiling hanging shelves. I'm ready to build the workbench (finally!) after what was hopefully my last lumber yard run. I also scored a nice 8' kitchen counter top for $70 due a small chunk that got broken off in shipment, my garage counter is going to outshine the kitchen


This is the workbench I'm planning on. Should be heavy enough with that counter and most importantly I'll be able to take it with me when I eventually move.

^That looks like a good bench, and yes, make it 8 feet long as you are planning to do!

At no time has ANYONE ever said, "I wish my bench wasn't so long".

The problem for me with an 8 foot bench is only about 3 or 4 feet of it are clean, the rest collects crap. I had a huge bench in my shop, I ended up selling it on craigslist and building a smaller one as I got tired of having crap on it all the time. Now I am forced to keep it clean so I can use it.

I have a 4' bench and it's covered, as I'm lacking storage. I'm thinking of doing Gorilla Racks, instead of base cabinets. Another inmate used such a system with totes for storage. I have ~36' of wall that can be lined with shelves/counter space. Pulling a tote to get what I need seems a whole lot nicer than getting on my knees to dig through a base cabinet. I'm thinking of hanging shelves, overhead for more storage. I have 10' ceilings, so I have plenty of options, up top. If I have so much crap that I fill that much counter and storage space, I need to go on Hoarders.
