Before You Start

What You Should Have Done

  • House Layout
    • Everything should be marked! If you haven't done this yet, go through your house and mark where everything that requires electricity will go.
    • Rough-in boxes should be installed. Anything that requires a box should have it's box installed in the proper location.
  • Information
    • Power requirements. You need to know the power requirements for all special equipment (such as your furnace, heat pump, hot tub etc.).
    • Feed Location. For anything that doesn't require a box, that you will just stub a wire out for and connect later, you need to know where it feeds at (such as "top right" or "bottom left"). If you didn't mark this during house layout and boxing, do it now.
