I just bought a house about a month ago that's been "gutted" so I have alot of work to put in. Most of the work I've done before, but who ever decided to take from the house took the fuse box/circuit breaker box out. Now I don't know which one the house originally had in, or if it makes a difference. What I need to know is how do I figure out which wire goes where?
Is the cable from the meter still there?? The size of that will determine the size of the service panel you can install, or install a new service drop sized for the panel you want to install. As for the wires hanging out. #14 go to 15A breakers, #12 to 20A breakers, etc., one wire per breaker. Don't forget to have all that inspected.
