Days 1 and 2

We got started on the house wrap on Saturday, but we quickly became too short for the job...

...the rest is on hold until we get either taller ladders or scaffolding.

I wired my very first electrical outlet today!

Only 200 or so left to go...

How exciting. It is a good thing you have to work so hard at it, or you wouldn't sleep for the excitement of it all. You should be very good a wiring by the end.

Looking good, sending you luck and creative energy.

Shawna said...

Good for you. I am so inspired with your progress and efforts that as I begin some simply changes and upgrades I keep checking here for sources and ideas!

Wow, how did you learn how to wire the outlet?

Cheryl said...

Thanks for all the encouragement, you guys!

Rural Aspirations - My mom and step-dad have done a lot of wiring around their place, so they've been sharing their wisdom (and the BC electrical code book has been our late night reading for weeks now!).

It looks good. Coming right along.
Just think of all that equity you are building by doing some of the work yourself---you'll retire sooner :-D

Oh yes,we bought some scaffolding on line to do some of our work and are REALLY glad we did. Much more convenient than renting.
I don't know if they sell in your area but here is who we used and they were well priced and shipped on time:
Lucky you if you can borrow it---we couldn't.
