So we are working on the electric, trying to get it done within the three week schedule I set for ourselves. I'm still optimistic that we can do it, but there so many things to run. And it's constantly up and down on the step ladder for all of the ceiling work. Sandra is working alongside me, so to speak, setting boxes, drilling holes through studs for wire runs, cutting ICF foam for boxes in those walls, cutting wire chases in the foam and feeding wire to me through a floor as I thread it through the floor trusses below.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I was hoping to get plastic on the ceilings by now so we can begin putting some heat in there while we work, but I ran out of can lights, and I now realize I need to get bath fans and get them in place as well before the plastic. So this weekend we'll head down to Santa Fe and pick the fans up, along with a pile more electrical boxes. Already have gone through 100 single gangs. I need another dozen ceiling fan boxes for fans and chandeliers, another couple dozen round boxes for vanity lights and fire alarms etc. It's like plumbing fittings. You really never realize how many get used. Of course if I could really go a good job of looking over the plans that I drew up, I might have gotten a better count, but I'd still not get everything. As Sandra is setting the boxes, there are still questions. Now that we are standing in the areas, we are reassessing a few things, like how many places do you want to be able to turn a certain group of lights on from? How many lights to cover this area? It's bigger than I had imagined, etc.

On the light subject, we have already gone through five cases of cans. Another ten cases arrived today. I think that might get us there. That's 90 cans total. I hate to think of the cost of LED's for all of those. :-( But fortunately, the cost of them have come down drastically in the past couple years. Even in the year since we finished the Mutton Busting project, they have come down another 25%. So while I've already bought a dozen so we can get some light to work by, it'll be better to hold off buying the others until we get much further along. Prices may be cheaper still in six months.

I meant to get a couple pics taken but keep forgetting, although looking at wiring isn't the most interesting thing.
