Electrical & Plumbing

I have a new understanding and respect for plumbers and electricians, especially the guys working on our small house. It’s a tight fit to get everything running through the walls, avoiding obstacles and maintaining the correct slope. Fingers crossed that when we flip a light switch that the shower doesn’t turn on!

It was also interesting to learn about what’s up to code. For example, wall outlets need to be placed every 12′. We’ve been living in a house built in 1926 and we’re lucky to have maybe two outlets PER ROOM.
