Final Electrics

Over Christmas and the New Year we had a big push to get projects done around the house. The big goal was to complete the kitchen project. There were several items that have been on the to do list for a while. I have been avoiding this last electrical task because I knew it would be time consuming. Well it had to get done. The task was to reduce this set of switches from a 5 gang to a 4 gang. The complicated part is that there are 8 circuits entering the box, two of the switches are three way switches, and nothing had been grounded when they were first installed. The old metal junction box also had to be ripped out and replaced with a new plastic box. The entire project took about 5 hours, including patching the wall. I was glad to check that one off the list
