Got a few minor items done, and one major accomplishment. Our oldest dug the trench from the transformer to the house and we placed the main electric power conduit to the meter location, while the youngest dug out all around the house to expose the foundation a little, and washed and scrubbed it so we can seal it and paint it. We had a little issue with fire ants getting into the house in one corner. Although they are gone now (thanks to Amdro fire ant bait), we are going to re-seal and paint the bottom edge of the dome where the panels meet the foundation. We also had a little time to ride around on the mini bikes, have a bonfire, and fill the cracks in the dome floor with concrete sealer. Fun family day!

Pat in the hole. It's been almost five years since I placed the conduit under the transformer, so we had to dig around to find it. Ended up with a pretty big hole under the transformer trying to find the conduit so we could connect to it.

Hey Brian,

I'm curious to know why you are running conduit all the way to the transformer.  I just did a little research on this subject for the area where I plan to build (in Georgia) and the power company only wants the conduit stubbed down into the ground, but not run all the way to the transformer.

I've enjoyed watching your progress.

Mark

It must be a Florida Power and Light requirement. I considered asking about it, but since it was only 12 feet I decided it was cheap insurance. Plus, they provide the conduit and since I dug, they took $150 off the $400 fee for energizing. The primary side (from the pole to the transformer) is about 400 feet, and they required that in conduit as well.
