How to add an Electric Outlet to a Bathroom

Electrical Question: I wanted to add an outlet to a bathroom.

I have everything down to the studs. The current set up is as follows:

  1. A double switch set up, one for the ceiling light one for the light above the mirror.
  2. The wiring runs to an outlet.
  3. Then to the above mirror light.

Where do I connect the new outlet? I assume the outlet box, but it looks a little crowded in there?

This electrical question came from: James, a Handyman from Somers, New York.
