Done Wiring



You know for something that most people don’t even think about, wiring a house sure is a bunch of work. I ran 20 different branches and since we are already living in the house set outlets, switches and lights too. It’s finally done and tomorrow I can mount my two loaner solar electric panels, start installing the second layers of rigid insulation and sheet rocking every room as I go.

I’m really looking forward to this process. As each room is sheet rocked we will empty the boxes from that room that don’t belong there and move in the furniture that does. Some of these boxes were packed up in ’95 and we will be having the biggest Christmas of our lives reopening them. While we unpacked some of the kitchen boxes we ran across a box of garden seeds, probably around 40 packs. Sure some like the onions won’t be viable anymore but I’m excited to see what germination rates we get on the others.

The days are getting longer and the snow is quickly disappearing. Like the huge Douglas Fir by our house I can feel my sap rising and awakening from this lazy winter and preparing for another busy summer.

  1. Sounds like you can see the finish line. What are you using for power now, and will it all be run on solar in the future? I was assuming you were off-grid.

  2. Yeah, that’s a helluva lot of wiring for two panels. What’s your plan for power?

  3. The box sure looks a lot prettier with the cover on it. I can’t wait to see it all with a wall around it! Good job.

    P.S. Nobody wants to hear about your sap rising.

  4. Yea, NW Energy wanted 10-20K to just run the line to let me enjoy the monthly fucking. We are off grid, up till last week we were just genny but now I’m getting up to 6AH@60V off the two loaner solar panel (thanks beercan). There are already things in the works for other alternative solutions.
