Surface mounted panel. How insulate before closing wall.


hello. i have a new cottage. right now the walls are 2x4 construction. osb on the outside and nothing on the inside.

i am doing the insulation and poly myself and then the builder is putting on the drywall and then electrican will put the panel on (surface mounted).

there are wires running down from the rafters and just end within the wall space. i believe that these wires are what the electrician will use to attach to the panel, but how do i insulate and poly the wall?

I HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE BUT IF IT DOESNOT PLEASE ASK ME QUESTIONS. I NEED HELP!!!!!

Just pack fiberglass in around the wires and he can work them from there. Your other option you could wait until the electric is finished and kill the power loosen the box and spray foam insulation behind it. I would go with the first choice.

Leave that space open. Don't do anything in that bay until the electrician is done.
