I have a 30x40 with 12' ceilings. I used (9) of the double bulb 8' high output "cold start" lights from Lowes. Bright as heck in there. Even with temperatures near 0 the lights instantly come on. Spend the extra $30 bucks or so and get these you won't regret it.

30x40 post frame building with 10' sidewalls. I have two rows of three 8 foot T8 fixtures, in other words six fixtures for a total of 24 four foot T8 bulbs. The fixtures are mounted 7-1/2 in from each sidewall. If I were to do it again I might mount them even closer to the wall. For the most part I have plenty of lighting. The T8 ballasts are rated down to zero degrees F. They work good in cold weather, although they take a minute to warm up.

I have a 36x40 with 10 ft ceiling, when my eyes got old I installed 15 double 8 footers, cold start with body shop bulbs. It's just like working out in the sunshine. They show all the sins and when a job looks good in there it's even better outside. Go to your local body shop and see what there using, there's a lot of different lights for different applications.

High output fluorescents! Bright as day light, and they work in the cold!

I hate not being able to see so when we bought the place, I went to the local BB store and bought floescent fixtures that were on sale. Single tube 1 meter long (36 watt?) fixtures replaced every lightbulb fixture. Use a lot less electricity and see everything. I got some chopstick specials for 3 bucks complete and they've been in place 10+ years. Only problem I had was breaking a tube with a long board. New tube cost more than another assembly so bought the whole thing and have a spare....
