It’s Electric…Boogie Woogie Woogie

After one minor electrocution incident from flicking a light switch on, we realized it was finally time to conquer the old wiring.  The vast majority of the house is old knob and tube wiring so as we’ve been working on projects (like the bathroom remodel) we’ve been trying to replace it with modern wiring.  After realizing a few problem children areas, it was time to push forward.  We gutted the hallway and another room upstairs so Colby and our electrician could go to town.  Big mess, but it’s getting better.  If it was up to our electrician, we would have the ENTIRE house gutted but we couldn’t live like that.  Hopefully by the end of next summer the house will be completely re-wired!  Woohoo!  Enjoy our big big mess pictures.  Also note our use of temporary lighting in the bathroom…more bathrooms need floor lamps these days!
