Homes have lots of electric wire buried inside walls and under floors. Old houses have lots of wire form different eras. 3283's initial electric wiring was installed in the early 1900s and not updated in one single logical manner. Over time wires were strung as needed to serve the latest new ''modern'' purpose. Their routes and logic can best be described as random.
B&L is trying to make some sense of the wiring. Friday they disconnected the circuits from the old circuit breaker box and extended all circuits serving the second floor to the new service. They also removed all the first floor circuit wires and will begin to organize them on Monday. Also, they ran new ''special purpose'' circuits to: the water heater, the sanitary pump, the electric range and the furnace.

Most on the left are to connect the second floor circuits.
Those on the right are from first circuits that will be identified and connected to the new panel.
|Much of the crew's time was running and securing wires -- some new and some old.|
|Wires from the second floor will be spliced to|
extensions leading to the new service in this junction box.
|Here's our new circuit box with some of the new wires ready to be installed.|
|Still no leaves on the trees. But there are buds showing on the lilacs.|
The wind howled all day and the waves were as high as I've seen them..
