Default Just all me "Sparky"!

Well, I never claimed to be an electrician, but I got the job done.

My sweetie wanted an outlet for her curling iron in the bathroom so...

Luckily, there was outlet on the opposite side of the wall, and within the same cavity in between two studs! I don't know why it took so long, but I managed to get the job done. She is happy so I am happy!

And it's a GFI plug too(by law). That should tell her you want her around for a while.

Fortunately I have an open basement on the bathroom side so I have two seperate circuits . A 15amp 14gauge wire for the fan ,mirror and lights , and a 20amp 12 gauge wire circuit dedicated for hair blowers etc beside the vanity

Filling up that 200 amp service pretty quick, eh!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Seriously it doesn't take long . If I wasn't poor I'd have a home theatre system that needed a 100 amp service all by itself .
That may sound like overkill but it's not . The amplifier I want is the Anthom P5 and it weighs 130 pounds and has two 15 amp plugs because it draws 3600 watts . I like headroom so I'd have two 20 amp plugs for the amp . Then my paradigm 2300 series subwoofer requires a 20 amp service (recommended in the manual ) and I'd like to run a front and rear sub , so there's two 20 amp branches for those two . Then I'd have a 20 amp circuit for the flatscreen and the receiver and other components .

When we moved into this house 14 years ago, every outlet in the place was worn out so plugs were loose. Replaced every one of them. What a chore, but nice to have new ones. I also installed exterior outlets through the front wall from the boxes on the other side. Very handy at Christmas.

Even freaky European gymnast girls like to be warm. Whoops, you don't have insulation.

That's the most annoying thing ever . I was watching YouTube and the guy recommended getting a better quality outlet . I'm like , I've only seen the one make and that's it . There all a buck or less.

I find working with 14 gauge is awesome ,12 gauge not so much .
