Nailing strips to hold the ceiling panels

Strips are up!

Ceiling complete, and shoulders are BURNING

Cutting Station!

Starting on the walls, going for manly look, also not expensive

More walls going up.

Around one window

half lit RAVENS light



Still have to do some trim at the seams and windows, other than that its ready to host parties!

Just need to furnish but a cooler full of beer will work for now!

Romex 10/2

from breaker box to shed under ground.

I wont tell my wife that she can cut the power from the garage, or she might use that to her advantage!
Juts one circuit ?
I would have run 10-3 for 2 circuits (MWBC -multi-wire branch circuit), especially if you need AC & heat out there

But with a small window AC you should be fine
Looks good so far, my cabana is for the pool, so did not bother with insulation
It doesn't really get hot enough up here long enough to worry about it

Did you use conduit ? 12-2 is yellow for a 20a circuit
But it is not rated for direct burial in the ground
You need 12-2 UF (grey) for direct burial, must be 12"+ down
Not sure if (or when) you will have problems with the 12-2 yellow buried
