If you haven't figured it out yet, we have a large basement. It is under the main house [900 sq ft] the front porch [300 sq ft] the addition [264 sq ft] and the back porch [100 sq ft]. That's 1564 sq ft of area which is divided up into 4 areas/rooms by unfinished load bearing stud walls, a fireplace foundation and a stairway. Ceiling lights were installed by my contractor as required by code. But no electric outlets were included in that work. I'll be installing about a dozen outlets to cover all of the areas. Over the last couple days I drilled holes, installed outlet boxes and pulled wire for five of these locations. These five will be on one circuit and are generally located in the east "half" of the space.
|You can see 4 of the 5 here. Wire was also run back to the circuit breaker box.|
|The new living room windows are in the garage waiting to be installed.|
Its Thursday morning as I write this. I've been organizing, straightening and cleaning yesterday and today. This is in preparation for Sue, Damon, Drew and Leo's arrival late tonight/early tomorrow morning. Bobbie and her mom are also coming today. So 3283 will soon have seven of us here. Then, next week Mike, Lindsay and JJ will come for a few days over the 4th of July. 3283 will be filled with family -- just as it is supposed to be.
Because of the "visitors" I'm uncertain if "progress" will be slowed or hastened. I expect that I won't be posting as much. But rest assured that I'll catch up when I do.
Be Happy and Have Fun
We certainly will be.
