We are still working on getting the house wired. After our first weekend I thought we might be a 3rd of the way done, but man was I wrong. We did have a good chunk of the wiring done in the house, mostly just lacking some of the lighting. What I didn't realize was how long it takes to get the home runs back to the panel done. It seems to be taking about 30 minutes per run back to the panel. We have about 30 more runs to get done... Our garage ceiling came out very tall. I am going to guess it's somewhere in the 12-13 ft range, so crawling around on the rafters is a bit unnerving. I have laid some boards up there to crawl on but its still a little freaky. Our power pole is right at the limit on this house (150ft) so we had to mount the panel on the far end of the garage according to our power company. So we have some pretty long runs to get inside the house. According to The electrician we are working with it is not to code to "bundle" the wires. That means we have to tack each one up. Once we get through the garage I have put in 1 3" inch pvc pipe and 1 4" pvc pipe through to the main part of the house. The foam guys sprayed around these pipes so we have a nice easy path to get the runs into the house.
