Have decided to do 2-1/2" schedule 40 for the whole length. Nothing is going to be where it could get hit when I am done. And the extra width should make my pull so much easier.

yeah on the front and back but I would have to go all the way around everything or tear it up. Overhead was a thought too but really don't want to splice wires to do that.

If you don't mind the look run over head and then you crimp the wires

So you would of had to of gone around everything like a snake? Yeah, that's a bad idea. Best to keep lines as short and straight as possible.

There is no splicing if you get the correct lengths. Overhead is dangerous anyways. I am glad you went a different route.

Yeah I have been planning this for a while since our home was fed by some three wire URD that was ran improperly to the home and would really like it to be done properly.

And I like the industrial look of some nice conduit running into the home. If the wife don't like it showing around the home she can put flowers or bushes to cover it up.
