Tedious work

We ran a bunch of electrical circuits under the crawl space today. There's not a ton of space down there, but it was easy enough to do. I started making up all the switches and light boxes as well. It's tedious and it makes the tips of your fingers hurt from screwing on wire-nuts and dealing with the little wires...BUT... Its a whole lot better than paying someone $14,000 to do it for us! With lights, wire, various parts, and tools we've only spent $1800 so far and I expect to be well under $3000 for the whole project.

Assuming neither of us burns the house down or electrocutes ourselves that's a nice little savings! And I would even willing to take a shock or two for it. Nothing major, but a couple little shocks would be worth $11,000 in my book.
