At the moment I am insulating the top of the cabin, and putting the ceiling and side panels back. I installed wiring where I think the lights and power leads should go, not an easy one-hand job. But it has to be done.
I am (re) installing the panels with nylon inserts and stainless steel bolts, so they can come out easily. The brass screws just did not look neat, and were flimsy. But getting the holes in the panel to line up with the inserts is not that easy, as the plywood tends to grab the drill bit and pull the drill away from where it should go.

I am painting, in many cases repainting the wood, blocks, back of panels, with a waterbase anti-fungus sealer product. Dry rot, even in a steel hull, is not going to be fun.
