Rewiring #2: Drillin', Cuttin' & Dust Everywhere

« Part 1: Subpanel blues Part 2 of Rewiring series Part 3: Finished and Signed Off! »

So: Template, made of two pieces of ¾” plywood: One has squares cut out for the two sizes of boxes (1 gang and 2 gang), one holds it the appropriate distance off the floor, and is on the outside so that it goes over baseboards.

Run around the house, measuring to where we think we’ll miss a stud. Draw the appropriate box on the wall. Bash a hole in the middle of it with a big screwdriver. Take the Sawzall™ with the diamond edged masonry blade, carefully cut out a hole (the house is plaster over button board, a lot harder than drywall). Holes all over the house, including a few that’ll need a touch of patching.

And, of course, some of those walls are thinner than the blade, which meant I bent a couple of blades when I banged them into the other side…

For the existing boxes, we actually cut them out of the wall, which left a bigger hole than we’d like, but mostly worked.

For interior holes, we drilled down through the new receptacle holes. Dinged up the wall a bit, but that way we could be sure we were hitting the wall.

For the holes around the exterior walls, I went into the crawlspace with a ¾” auger bit on an extension, measured from the corner of the house, drilled up, pushed wire up, Charlene grabbed it, and we went around the house.

Sunday afternoon we were able to flip the breakers back on and had power to the house. I still need to go under the house, put up 1×4 runner boards for the runs orthogonal to the floor joists (even though it’s in difficult to access space, my read of code is that I have to do all runs of #12 wire on a backer, lest someone try to hang clothes on it).

So, a few things left to do:

  1. Wire in the wired smoke & CO detectors, and the warning strobes. Because we’re doing so much work, city decided we should bring all the electrical up to modern code, and that includes wired sensors. Even though you still have to replace the batteries in them every year, and even though you should replace them every 10 years, and even though there are modern detectors with 10 year batteries. Go figure.
  2. Flip kitchen and bath sockets. I went with ground pin up, for all the ground pin up reasons, but we decided that the tide is too big to hold back and so went ground pin down on these new ones. We should be consistent.
  3. Double check the lighting stuff we already did, and amend the permit for all the places we did other things (ie: we ran two extra lights, we probably need to put motion and light sensors on one set of exterior lights).
  4. Staple the stuff in the crawlspace (obviously).
  5. Cover up the access hole we cut for the runs from the new panel to the crawlspace.

rsa, et Nike Air Max Sale nous ????? ????? d?mes camper, chaussure adidas pas cher afin de réparer un des patins, que adidas outlet le Pandora Store choc avait Nike Online Store endommagé.


Je fis cuire Nike Roshe Run le souper, fondre Kobe Shoes Nike de la glace pour cheap nike air max le café, et donnai günstige nike schuhe aux chiens nfl store leur patée, tandis que Cheap True Religion Jeans Lon Jordan Shoes Air travaillait au ugg factory outlet patin. Après quoi, nous réun?mes une provision louboutin heels de suivre un envoi branches Boutique Ugg mortes, pour Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses le Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher feu Yeezy Boost Sale Online de la nuit, et, assis sur nos couvertures, nous f?mes sécher devant la Nike Shoes Online flamme Air max dam nos mocassins Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet fumants, piqués UGG Boots Cheap sur des batons, tout en allumant Adidas Superstar Sale Online notre pipe vespérale.


Ce fut Lon qui, à br?le-pourpoint, me Nike Air Max Cheap demanda Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace :


— Tu ne UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN la connaissais pas ?


Je fis de nike shoes la moncler jacket sale tête un signe négatif.


— Tu air force one pas cher as remarqué, sans doute, le Adidas Originals Sale flamboiement doré Pandora Outlet Store de sa Canada goose dam chevelure, l’éclat Nike Store de ses prada outlet yeux et nike air jordan pas cher la fra?cheur merveilleuse de sa botas de futbol peau. Elle donne Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel l’impression Nike Air Shoes de la cheap uggs for women première New Nike Shoes lueur, zapatillas nike baratas chaude et rosée, des rayons de Pandora Official Website l’aurore. D’où Nike Huarache Womens Cheap le Ugg Outlet Online Store nom qui Cheap Nike Free Run lui a été donné, de Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace ? Braise d’Or ?. canada goose jackets on sale Jamais, rappelle-toi, tu Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher n’as entendu Nike Polo Sale parler d’elle Nike Outlet Store ?


Je m’effor?ai Air Max 90 de réveiller mes souvenirs, qui demeurèrent confus et nébuleux. Official NHL Jerseys Ce Toms Factory Outlet nom Hugo Boss Sale ne m’était pas Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas tout à Nike joggesko fait inconnu, et pourtant Ugg boots Sale il ne Cheap Real Jordans m’apprenait rien de huarache sneakers précis.


— Braise d’Or, Ugg Pas Cher En France Braise nike tn pas cher d’Or… dis-je, Pandora Outlet enfin, Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace cela coach factory outlet online ressemble à TOMS OUTLET un nom de danseuse.


Lon secoua ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE la tête.


Nike Factory Store Tu The official UGG n’y es pas. Pas du Adidas Neo Discount Sale tout Stone Island Outlet ! fitflops sale uk C’était une femme… je ne sais Moncler Sale pas comment dire…


— Mais pourquoi parles-tu d’elle au passé, comme Cheap Toms Outlet Store si elle était Cheap True Religion Jeans morte ?


Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens à cause des ténèbres Vans Black Sneakers qui Nike Shox Cheap se sont étendues sur Nike Factory Outlet son ame Nike Air Sneakers et qui sont l’égal de la TOMS For Sale mort. Yeezy Men La Braise Official Toms Shoes Outlet d’Or que newest lebron shoes j’ai connue, que tout Dawson a pandora beads connue, womens nike air max n’est retro jordans for cheap plus de ce monde. Nike Shoes Sale Store Rien Cheap Air Max ne subsiste, longchamp bags on sale en la pauvre Louboutin Wedding Shoes folle Nike Roshe Run Sale que nous avons vue hier Cheap Nike Air Huarache soir, de l’ancienne Air Max Femme Braise d’Or.


— Et Dave Jordan Shoes For Cheap ? demandai-je.


— Dave avait Michael Kors Clearance construit Nike Air Women cette cabane, Toms Outlet Online pour elle et TOMS STORE pour lui. Lui TOMS SHOES OUTLET est mort. Elle l’attend là, Descuentos Nike toujours, car elle n’est canada goose jacket outlet pas Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet bien persuadée Adidas Yeezy Cheap qu’il ne Timberland Outlet soit plus. Mais Nike Air Max Goedkoop qui peut nike air sonder le Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap tréfonds d’une vans shoe store ame perdue ? Peut-être Canada Goose Online Store croit-elle Canada Goose Outlet vraiment Pandora Store Sale qu’il n’est pas mort. ?????? ????? Ce Ugg Pas Cher Femme qui est certain, c’est qu’elle l’attend dans Adidas Originals Stan Smith cette Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag cabane qu’il a christian louboutin outlet construite. Mais Cheap Air Max Trainers comment ressusciter ceux qui ne sont plus ? Je n’ai pas Air Max Pas Cher voulu la chagriner Boty Nike Air et Nike Soccer Cleats Boots j’ai Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale dit Cheap Nike Huarache comme Pandora Store elle. Et, Scarpe Air Max si chaussure basket homme Dave avait Discount Air Max soudain apparu, le plus Soccer Boots Outlet nike étonné, pour s?r, scarpe nike e?t été moi.


— Je Canada Goose Outlet ne comprends goutte à ton histoire. Christian Louboutin Heels Prends-la par le Hogan Outlet début et nike sneakers conte-moi Uggs For Cheap cela.


Lon Moncler Outlet Online Mac Fane parla ainsi Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher :


Nike Tn Requin Pas Cher Victor Chauvet était Cheap Michael Kors un ancien Fran?ais, New Air Max 2017Air Max Sneakers dans Coach Bags On Sale le Nike Shox discount Sale Midi de la France. Il vint en Adidas NMD For Sale Californie, à l’époque nike jordan shoes de Reebok Outlet Store la ruée vers l’or. Pandora Style Beads Non pas pour Nike Air Damen chercher de l’or, mais pour Discount TOMS y mettre du soleil Adidas Originals Superstar en Jordan Sneakers For Sale bouteilles. Nike Air 90 Je Scarpe Nike Scontate veux dire qu’il 23 IS BACK Store était asics sko vigneron reebok running shoes de son métier, Adidas Superstar et Billige Nike Sko qu’il fabriquait chaussures nike pas cher et adidas store débitait ugg clearance du vin. De Californie, il Nike Air Pas Cher suivit Air max levn? la Cheap Louboutin Heels course à l’or jusqu’en Alaska, où elle Nike Shoes Discount Marketplace s’était transportée, Chaussure Air Max et fut Jordan Store un des Cheap Retro Jordans For Sale premiers qui arrivèrent sur Discount Christian Louboutin Shoes les Mens Nike Air Max bords du Yukon. nike sportschuhe On cheap uggs le vit également, voilà douze ans, Moncler Outlet Store sur nike sb stefan janoski ceux Air Nike du toms shoes outlet Porcupine.
