Laying insulation, wiring and ceiling fans

Hello Internet!

Just posting some more updates on the trailer project. I’ve been working steadily on the trailer, but it’s been with things that haven’t been the most photogenic, which is why I haven’t posted too many updates lately. Here is my progress!

After finishing the interior painting, I started insulating the outside of the ceiling layer. which will be covered by a second roof layer. Due to size limitations and my wiring setup, I’m not able to put insulation on the entire ceiling, but I’m covering over 75% of the ceiling with insulation so I’m not too worried.

 

I also cut the opening in the ceiling for our rooftop-ceiling fan! Here are some  pictures:

Finally, I installed the second reading lamp, and laid some trim down on in the bottom sides of the wall to make the yellow pop a bit. Here are some pictures with the fan and door installed to see how they look together.

New reading lamp, trim, door and window for viewing pleasure. Starting to look good!

As usual, will keep you posted on the progress I make. This coming week, I’ll be working on putting the exterior roof layer on, should be loads of fun!

    I have seen ceiling fans that have some sort of molding to cover the exposed exterior wiring that leads to a receptacle where a single switch to control the fan is usually installed. How is this type of mission accomplished? Where can I get all the information needed to do this successfully and inexpensively? Can you kindly explain in detail the steps for me? I would gratefully appreciate it.
