Installing new sub panel in the attic


Looking back at your photos, how do you expect to get 5 new circuits out of your existing load center?

Installing new sub panel in the attic


The five circuits will be replacing other existing K&T circuits. This is part of a rewire of the entire house.

Here are the pictures inside the main which were requested earlier:

Installing new sub panel in the attic


Also, the lack of room in the existing main panel is another reason I was thinking about putting that sub panel in the attic. All I would have to do at first is install one new double pole breaker in the main. Would make the wife quite a bit happier if I wouldn't have to shut off the juice for as long that way.

I am slowly being convinced that the sub panel isn't needed, but it certainly would complicate things as far as keeping power available while I run the circuits. With a sub panel I could just get it all ready to go and then flip on the 60 amp breaker. Done.
