wiring project is complete!

Electrical service and network wires have been run out in the yard over to Oliver's house. The electrical service is so Oliver's House can be heated. Having an outdoor electrical outlet means no ugly extension cord running through the yard this winter!

Outdoor electrical service installed

I'm quite happy to have that part of the project complete. That's been something I wanted to do since I first heated Oliver's house but didn't get around to until now. With that now done, I can focus on running wires for the remaining parts of the in-house ethernet network.

Going into the crawlspace under the house is never a joyous experience. It's dark, dirty with lots of spider webs everywhere. I'm not the biggest fan of spiders and I'm really not a fan of rodents. Thankfully, I've never encountered a rodent under there, but I still fear it could happen!

To combat my anxiety about entering the crawlspace, I use the buddy system even though it tends to slow down my productivity. I find the trade off to be worthwhile.

Back on the job

I was in the crawlspace running ethernet wire to jacks in the living room. Good times!

Thankfully with Oliver, Nahum and Willow's help, this project is now complete! So now I can shift my energies over to other projects.
