Ed.

The inside of the cabin was unfinished, except for a work bench the former owner had built inside and a bunch of makeshift shelves he built into the framework.  Ed tore that all out and got to work on wiring for the electric.

He added 8 outlets inside, 4 inside light fixtures, a porch light and an outside porch light switch and outlet.  Since he was going to be adding a heating and cooling unit, and I would be running an oven for clay, and tools, Ed felt it would be best for the cabin to have it’s own electrical panel.

Next, he measured and cut a hole to install the small AC/Heat unit (7000 BTUs) and then added the insulation:

The tray shelf, we decided, would stay as extra storage for craft items I don’t use often that take up a lot of space.

Next, came the sheetrock.  The inside of the cabin is 11′ x 7′:
