Project House Weekly Wrap, Episode 3: Workshop Electrical Systems

comments (7) February 15th, 2012 in Blogs
For use with Project House Blog videos only

Video Length: 5:28
Produced by: Rob Wotzak


In episode 3, Fine Homebuilding editors Dan Morrison and Justin Fink outline the electrical projects necessary to turn the attached 2-car garage at the Project House into a workshop.

With demo and framing almost done, it's time to move on to running wires for future lights and electrical outlets. Because there will be a table-saw cabinet in the middle of the shop, we needed to add some floor outlets. We decided to feed power to these outlets through conduit run under a floating subfloor. There will also need to be plenty of light for a safe work environment and for shooting videos and magazine photos.


Justin Fink called in licensed electrician Brian Walo to install a subpanel, wiring, outlets, and switches. We captured the entire project in 2 members-only how-to video series. Watch the following FREE previews of the video series:

FWIW, I got a note from a contractor in Florida who described the process for opening a beer with his wedding ring...
