Thanks to all who advised! Passed rough inspection, now I can finish my wall in the garage, install my workbench, put up the pegboard, organize my tools, have a light in the garage so I can see after dark, and wait for the POCO to connect to the new service entrance.

Please do NOT consider any "before" picture of my house as any kind of endorsement of any particular construction method. In fact, you should probably assume that if I post a "before" picture, I am posting it because I am soliciting advice on a proper replacement for one of MANY things done wrong by a previous owner.

Good to hear

Quite an experience, eh?



Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should

You did hear the US signed a treaty this morning agreeing to stabilize all AC current to three phase over the next five years and to be DC compliant with all tools and appliances by 2020?

Is that socket rated for 200 amps? It looks kind of small, but might be the pic.

Congrats Will.
