routing cables through walls and attics


i jus finished routing all my cables through my attic and walls and turns out to be really easy, even though im only 13 i still managed to do it in less thatn 3 hours, i routed 4 speaker cables for my surround sound system, rerouted my cable to the other wall, and added another outlest for my entertainment system.if you need help routing your cables just ask me and ill reply in less thatn 5 mins. im pretty happy with the cable because i routed it around teh house instead of through parralel with power cabes which make interference, i also routed it under the insulation, and iw as also jus expirementing to see if i would be able to rotue through an existing exterior wall... well turns out i finished it in the same day as i biekd to ace hardware to spend all my cash on speaker wire.. lol rep back if you need help.

Good job kid. Now go ask your parents if their homeowner's insurance is up to date and all the smoke detectors have fresh batteries.

Good Job, you sound like a vary smart young man. Electricians are highly trained, and experienced. One of the most important things they do is to have their work inspected by an electrical inspector. This makes sense because two heads are better than one, and anyone can miss something. Some states require by law that the work is inspected. You need to have an electrician look at your work, and give you a pat on the back for a job well done. The electrician can tell you what you need to do next. Most electricians, and inspectors are also good teachers.

It sounds like you were shopping there because it was convenient, but just FYI, you are getting ripped off for speaker wire at Ace Hardware.

Some of the misspellings are so bad you would need to do it on purpose.

Than again arrogant people think everything they do is correct, no matter what their age.

I'm leaning towards a chain jerker.

No 13 yr old of mine would be playing on the Internet at 1-am.

And why the constant references to your age? Me thinks you jest.

I think even if you where 13 you would have some pride. Reread everything before you post, its embarrassing when you think about all the tax dollars lost trying to get you ready for the real world.
