PART 4 of a multi-part series on how I built a Tuff Shed in my backyard to use as a home studio for YouTube, podcasting and more. Part 5 on creating & installing the river rock landscaping will be released soon.
This episode is a quasi-prequel as it happened before my previous finish out video. Why? Because I had to test and install the solar wiring/panels before I got the insulation and sheetrock done. So I made this a standalone episode. In it I cover testing the solar wiring and power station – and then show the actual DIY solar panel install.
