White washed cedar (big thanks to Pat!), milled down the center (big thanks to Charlie!), flanks the decorative 2' x 2' tin panels.
In the end, because I found the metal's high contrasting lights and darks to be distracting when drawing, I decided to take them down and paint them white.
Main thing missing: CROWN MOLDING. To be continued.

Amy, old friend and former union electrician, joined me this fine May day to kick out the electric. I had run the wires, but needed to attach the boxes and a few other whistles. What a joy to flick a switch and have the lights go on and even better to spend the day working with good company.

I'm finishing up the interior walls and trim. I'm leaving the section between the windows open for shelf space. The windows face NE and NW, making ideal light for a studio. There will be a wrap-around desk in this section.
The final step is to put blocking in the roof, then insulation, then the ceiling. I am going to go with fiberglass insulation due to its performance with moisture. The denim-cotton wouldn't hold up. For the ceiling's center section I am looking online at decorative pressed tin that comes in 2' panels. I am looking for a lightweight wood to use on the sides going up to the center.

Here are a few shots of the interior of the boat trailer. Originally, I wasn't planning on insulating it at all. I painted, the winter came, and I decided I better insulate after all. I did a combination of salvaged rigid foam insulation and bought denim/cotton UltraLogic insulation. The interior is salvaged fir and redwood. The electric runs through the walls, and through the ceiling, leading to a chandelier toward the windows. The trim work is yet to be completed. I am considering a pressed tin ceiling.
