Well it was started in June of 2012 and here it is 12 years later and this goes to prove tiny's are never really done. I was tired of crawling under the flip down desk (that has almost never been flipped down) to plug and unplug items.

Got out the key hole saw and decided to add mid wall duplex outlets

Image

I had intended to find a way to feed power upwards from the lower outlet back to the new addition and look what I found quite by dumb luck...

Image

Some how I was able to cut and remove 3 layers of foam without a bit of damage to the insulating sheath of the romex. So I no longer have to fish a wire up from below thru a wall stuffed solid with closed cell foam ( thank you lord) I was scratching my head as to how to allow the little arms that clamp the box to the drywall when the foam was in the way. I found a way to make a void in the foam without disturbing the drywall. Just chucked in an allen wrench and let it eat a pocket in the foam just big enough for the clamping arms to swing in place

Image

Had to add a bit of length to get everything to reach but it all went into place

Image

All done and the power back on and my circuit tester says I got them all in AOK

Image

Foam stuffed walls are great but think ot your electrical well this would have been about impossible had I had to feed upward :roll:

My senior aged joints can appreciate moving the outlets higher! Good idea.
