i'd have to agree with K_buz. Tear out of the old service and start from scratch. The beakers and panel really don't cost that much. Looks like a huge project overall. The electrical service will be a very small percentage of the overall cost.

My thought are confurmed, sure hope you have deep pockets.
Looks like some of the work already "done" is going to have to come down because it was done wrong.

Please explain gentlemen... once the service is installed and the power is turned on I'm golden right? I don't plan on installing anymore outlets, in fact about the only thing I plan on doing is living there until my next military move.

Aside from the breaker box what should be done interior wise?

Also Joe, I currently pay $700 a month in rent. I pay all my utilities, I can pay this house off lickidy split and put that $700 to work rebuilding without any infringement on my current net income. Most work such as hanging drywall, refinishing wood, installing sinks, toilets, etc. I can do. If the Army doesn't teach you much it usually teaches you self reliance. So I learn and do most things on my own.
