We are not going to miss the wiring hanging over our heads in the kitchen.
Now we have a junction box for the old wiring and new wires run to meet code for outlets and appliance power.
The first task they had was running down all the existing circuits.
They found some that we were not able to find!
Then they began installing the new outlet boxes. These were the very first ones.
Next they ran the new wire in the walls.
They are also running any existing wire in good shape to this junction box. Some existing wires extend all the way to the master bedroom where they will junction them for that side of the remodel.
I compromised on my NO ELECTRICAL PENETRATION IN OUTSIDE WALL policy and the wiring on the garage side is in the wall. That is not as bad as an outside wall since it is protected by the garage which is insulated. I will have to seal around the boxes and inside them with the vapor barrier and caulk.
The electricians expect to be working all next week which would make it a 10 day job. I’m looking forward to having this step completed and inspected and signed off.
