2012 - Basement demo


After about 2 hours, cutting holes in the drywall, I finally got 2 12-2 cables from the basement, up 2 floors and into the attic!!! Pictures are in order from basement, floor 1, floor 2 then attic.

Also removed the case iron pipe and picked up all new PVC, which I will get to tomorrow.

I used a Ryobi grinder ($39.97) from HD to get through the cast iron pipe. All tool rental places close around noon here on Saturdays!!!

I didn't connect the wires to the panel yet. It was getting late last night and my goal was just to get 2 12-2 wires into the attic. I'll probably get the wires to the bathrooms and hooked up in the panel on Monday. Today I'll be installing the french drain and dry fitting the 4" PVC for the toilet and shower.

Yes, I am on 200 amps and just had my panel replaced with all Square D QO equipment.

Got rid of the 15a GFCI in one bathroom and replaced it with a dedicated 20A GFCI on 12-2.

HD closed at 7 tonight and I need a few grommets to put the wire in the electrical panel...

I just spent the last hour reading all your 13 pages worth, very informative. Keep up the great work and keep us informed.
Last year i bought my first dwelling, small 750 sq feet condo and started doing some small renovations, nothing quite like this!!.
Thumbs up!

I finished installing the 20A circuit to the last bathroom last night. I had to cut a bigger hole because this box was fed from the bottom (there is an outlet on the other side of the wall in the master bedroom). I removed the old box and put in a New Work box. I'll get some drywall on it tonight and put on a tape coat of mud.

Just a few before an after pics of the holes I patched. Also, an updated panel legend that shows the 2 new 20A bathroom recepts.

Let me know if anyone wants the template.

Your fuse panel overlay is impressive! You put that together yourself?

Thanks!

No, I saw a template online and then customized it for myself.
Brown = Basement
Blue = Middle floor
Orange = Top floor.

I plan on eventually keeping this place as a rental and wanted to do everything properly and organized.

PS -- Had my electrical box inspected. Everything passed!!

Toward the end of the day, we started to concrete over the french drain and around the sump pit. Used around 17 60# bags of sakrete high strength, all mixed by hand.
