If I understand your plans, you are going to finish the wall below the windows and that is where you intend to install the new receptacles, correct? Please tell me how you are going to frame up that wall so I can best advise you on the wiring.

I am using high density foam panels and gluing them to existing wall.
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 7 months ago

OK. I suggest using Wiremold on the surface of the existing wall. An extension box on the existing outlet and backed mold boxes on the added ones. The use of the wiremold will protect the wires from penatration and allow any future wiring.
