You can do this.
Haha, your making it sound like your going to do some shady type electric
work. What the electrician did is terrible, might actually be against
building codes in some states. I urge you to recheck his work, i would hate
seeing the garage burned down due to terrible electric work. He may have
used old wire and hidden a connecter box to save himself wire or rerunning
a loop. If you want something done right the first time, do it yourself who
cares if it takes 10 times aslong.
Man, you look in perfect state to do your electricity!!! Nothing is shaking
still!!! Hahahaha!!! But yeah!!! You have to be careful and also very
careful not to inspire somebody to connect a bad wire!!!
I agree also on Hecket!!! Doing it yourself is better because you will
remember what you did!! There are a lot of irresponsable people who take
the risk doing improper work!!! Leaving you with a falls sence of
security!! I am a electrician myself and maybe I spent more on the wiring I
did here in my house but like Safety Sally…Safety First!!! I teach that
also my familymembers!!! How to use for exampler extensioncords the right
Wiring you put through a protecting tube!!! You mount that tube with
brackets underneath or on the sides of the beams!!! Or you use a very
secure cable with a outershell very resistent…sometimes with a metalwire
Drilling multiple holes in the structure may weaken it!!!
Now comes the most alarming part why you should not put the cables through
holes in the beams!! Because of the possibility of scuffing!!! That the
thing that brings down planes and set cars on fire!! When for somewhat
reason you pull on any location the wire you may dammage the outside of the
wire or the inside causing a bad connection! The current goes up because
the same energy wants to pass through the damaged part causing it to heat
up!! Inside the drilled hole!!! That definitly causes fire!
Myself… You have done a hell of a JOB on your Garage… i would have hit
the roof also over his piss poor location for the holes… Keep up the Good
Gotta love DIYers saying contractors don’t know what they are doing. This
is coming from the same guy that admits numerous times on numerous of his
videos that he had to take it apart and do it over again. Love the irony.
Also most likely you hired a cheap “contractor” from Craigslist because you
have no respect for them so you didn’t want to pay a REAL pro and you got
what you paid for. So you did some Googling of answers on your project so
that makes you the authority or better then a pro?
You “urge him to recheck the work”? Is this guy an electrician himself? No.
So how would a person with no electrical training know what is right and
what is wrong?
Any person with some common sense can tell you the warning signs. Hidden or
in plain sight useless electrical boxes. Unshielded or cracked wires.
Checking to see if ground and + and – are connected correctly. If you think
you need a diploma for rechecking this work that you are sadly mistaken. A
professional will make sure any electrical connection is on it’s own
circuit]. Light flikkering or going out for no reason is a major warning
sign. Looking at the comments you made here… rofling.
If someone compromises structure.. they are terrible.
I agree, especially because you will remember what you did. You can verfiy
there is nothing sketchy or done wrong, but also, you can look at your
finished walls and know exactly where all the wires are because you spent
time and effort putting them there. Which sure helps when you want to cut a
hole in your wall. :)
Thanks for proving my point. AC electric does not have a + or – that is DC.
Since you don’t know that everything you just said means nothing…good try
You don’t even know the difference between AC and DC and you are messing
with electric? That’s scary. I’m an electrician and most of my residential
work is fixing homeowner hack work. By all means do it yourself it makes me
and other pros more money in the long run.
You should grout your own piehole dumbass there your structure is safe you
have Joice hangers and the holes seem to be centered you should do your own
work ass and regret it
Code is that you don’t have anything within two inches of the end of the
joist. They don’t just pull code out of their butt, structural engineers
develop standard building code. All the guys attacking you because your
personal taste would go well beyond code are a little over excited, I am
sure they have absolutely no idea what the math involved in the strength
calculations are and what the strength differences between 4 inches and
say… 8 are, I do not believe you do either. It would be interesting to
hear from a structural engineer, but my guess would be that the added
strength per inch past four inches is probably greatly reduced compared to
the added strength from the first three inches, to the point that it is
likely not significant.
Those heated floors are definitely done right.. Hows that working for you?
