We have been building our house since November 2012 and since then we have had several set backs. You have to factor these in when you build anything, especially when you are paying as you go.
In December my car decided to break on us and it was an expensive fix. So we did nothing in that month. Then in January and February we had a LOT of rain so we had to work around the weather.
Now we are waiting to get power to our house. Our electrician can only help us on Sunday. I’m not complaining though because he is helping us for free. He has been busy. For the past couple of weeks we have been very busy editing wedding photos. So for now, everything is on hold.
We’re moving right along! Our house is wired. No power yet though. Our house is next to a bookcase shop. We will be connected to it’s main service box. We have to bury a service line about 100 ft. to the house. We will also have a grounding rod. I am so thankful to have an electrician helping us. It made things go by much faster and without all the mistakes we could make on our own. We can start putting up our bead board for the walls. Here’s what we have: 3 outlets for the kitchen, 3 outlets for the “office”, 12/24 circuit breaker box with 3 20 amp breakers and 2 15 amp breakers, an outlet for the AC, an outlet for the loft, a three way switch for the lights in the loft, a GFCI outlet for bathroom, and one outlet for outside. And of course all our lights and bathroom fan.
