I wish you all the best. You're starting off on a better foot than me because I didn't have this site nor did I have the book. But everything worked out. I'm sure all your ideas will all come together.

I am looking for a book that will summarize the parts of the NEC that are pertinent to wiring a house?  Does anybody have any good ones?

 

Thanks,

Bill

Wiring a House by Rex Cauldwell is a pretty easy to understand book that covers the basic topic. It is part of the Taunton's for Pros by Pros series. I think it may be available at Home Depot.  

There is also a small yellow and red covered book called Ugly's that is pretty good quick reference guide on wire and circuit breaker sizing.

Keep in mind the 2003 International Residential Code (IRC) Part VIII - Electrical (Chapters 33-42) is itself a summary of the most relevant residential parts of the 2002 NEC code.  This is further explained in the first paragraph of 2003 IRC Part VIII.  The IRC should address anything you encounter in wiring a house, condensed to around 60 pages (add 10 pages if you want to wire a swimming pool or self-contained hot tub).
