Powered Up, Kind Of

In the previous post I mentioned that one of my projects had been wiring up an outlet for the chicken coop that can be plugged into an extension cord.  I finally got it installed.

First I drilled a hole slightly larger than the diameter of the wire.  I then positioned the outlet box inside and passed the wire through the hole.  The next step was to finish the connections on the plug side, and viola we were ready for power.

This is nice because now I can keep the water bucket plugged in over night.  Previously I had to unplug it in order to close the door which allowed the water to freeze overnight.  I may also add a light in the coop but I haven’t decided on that yet.
