Well, I just got home and the electricians are done with their part of the job, running the wiring and installing receptacles etc. Now I have to clean up by patching all the drywall which will take some time, but probably couldn’t be avoided. Their wiring looks pretty good and the panel looks neat with the new circuits stapled to the backer board. So overall, a pretty chaotic three days, but probably par for the course.
So what have I learned from all this?

  • Even ‘small’ jobs can get snafu’ed.
  • Write everything down (even small stuff) which helped when I had to create a list of what needed to be completed when I wasn’t here.
  • Explain, clarify in person when the job is starting.
  • Have lots of bandages on hand.
