Be careful taking DIY advice from a DIY electrician. 
I am still wondering why YouTube allows these types of video clips by DIY persons and, why his former college allows this blog! - Joe Tedesco

I hear that too Alan - and after spending 25 years in the building business - I understand the sensitivity to "yet another layer of oversight" - I'm totally flabbergasted at the lack of detail by the Muni guys. Obviously this one should have never made the level of [Finished and Ready For A Certificate of Occupancy]. I'm floored!

Love to learn...so share it with me!
Introduction
My 42 Years in the construction industry has allowed me to wear many hats. All of them fit, some I've worn longer than others and I carry all of them where ever I go. See me here: GaryNSmith.net and here Northtowne Builders, LLC - I am:

Currently I'm doing a little of each of these and they all keep me busy. Diversification within my field of interest has allowed me to stay abreast of the changes that affect our daily lives and I'm proudest and most effective when I can give to those who need it the most.

Energy efficient building technology has a great opportunity to help lower our dependence oil based living. Almost everything we touch is a derivative of the petroleum business. That "umbilical cord" connection has a serious impact on who we are as a nation. I promote the energy rating industry and support it's efforts whenever I can.
