    Glad you got all that sorted out and things are coming together again Bill. You have done nothing but bust your ass and you deserve it.

    Well, I am now real damn familiar with my future work commute!
    According to my Fit-Bit, I logged over 50 miles walking around the new property since Friday morning. That has rendered me one hurtin' sonufabich. My bum-leg does not take kindly to walking. It will take me about 30 minutes to get vertical in the morning. But, I got a lot done! And totally worth the pain.

    WTF? 50 miles??

    I hope there's an ATV in your near term plan.

    I'm tired just thinking about it.

    Congratulations and best wishes for continued success.

    Still too far out to set a hard date. Right now the focus is getting the electrical service done.
    I budgeted a pretty hefty amount for the electrical. But, I am fairly certain, I am gonna blow that budget in a big way.
    We are finding all kinds of electrical issues all over the property. I even already almost had a fire in the main panel on the house.
    The 100amp two-pole breaker that feeds the back half of the property had a melt-down Friday night:
    20161217_092321.jpg
    And all I was running at the time were lights. The shop is not the only area that needs electrical help.
    This is all a little unexpected. But, we will deal with it.

    And, I don't think I will be needing any transportation for the commute, LOL.
    Its not that its far. It was just that I made the trip countless times. I almost have the shop empty.
    We didn't get the key to the garage early like we did the shop. So, there was nothing in there.
    I basically put ALL the boxes in there strategically scattered so Allison could get to them all.
    All the furniture went in the house. The furniture that didn't make the cut for the house is also in the garage.

    I figure by the end of the week I will have a pretty good handle on most stuff being put away.
    And the shop should be empty of anything that does not stay in there long-term. Fun Fun Fun

    You mean, over pay for Square D instead of buying good cutler hammer breakers?

    A 200 amp 40+ circuit square D panel is like $5 more than Siemans.

    The breakers cost twice as much, or more. And I should point out that Square D is a single source supplier, Cutler-Hammer breakers are available everywhere under a dozen different manufacturers.

    You get what you pay for. 20A single pole 6.00, 60A 2 pole 15.00 Yup that's likely to break you.

    Actually, this makes me nervous. Are you saying that breakers from other than C-H are being sold with the C-H mark, or breakers that will fit the C-H panels (not C-H branded). Anything that has the C-H mark could make C-H liable in case of failure. C-H is responsible for maintaining the U/L listing. Non C-H marked products may or may not meet the U/L requirements for listing which includes the initial testing plus fallow up review. I would not want any non-listed breaker in my panel, Chinese made or otherwise.

    That's exactly what you have. C H is not the best and all the knock off breakers from china, india and who knows where are all made to a low price not up to a standard. That gives you a breaker that among other problems does not grip properly when installed, gives a poor connection, creates heat and you end up with a breaker that looks like the one in the photo. Square D breakers and panels are far better than C H.

    I've always had Square D. Never though they were too expensive. Sure the 3PH breakers are $$$$, but all 3PH spark reducers will set you back a few bucks.

    Oy. C-H *style* breakers are available from many different manufacturers. I have never seen a Square-D compatible breaker from a 3rd party, I always had to pay through the nose for genuine Square-D. When it came time to wire my shop, I bought a C-H panel and breakers because they were more easily available, multi-sourced, and less expensive. Home Depot sells Siemens brand C-H compatible equipment. When I redo the main service on the house, I'm putting in a 400A Siemens panel with C-H style breakers.

    I've never had a single problem with them, they are "universal", and cheap. Murray, Siemens, Cutler-Hammer, etc are all the same. Square-D is Square-D and I didn't find their breakers to be any nicer, my last house had them and it was a PITA to find them and because they are narrower, it made the box more cluttered with connections.

    gump That's all I have to say about that. /gump
