We went to Lowes today and bought everything needed for me to add the new circuits in the basement. I decided I would just work on the circuits one at a time so I could find out if I’m doing something wrong early on. I’m not a fast worker, so after a few hours I had 5 outlets wired (one is a GFCI) and was ready to open up the breaker box and add the new breaker. That was the first time I’ve ever been working 3″ from the main power lines coming into the house – more than just a little unnerving! Anyway, as I was ready to pop in the newly wired circuit breaker…. it’s just barely the wrong physical size! So I had to unwire the ground and neutral and pull the wire out of the breaker box until I can get to Lowes tomorrow. Testing my new outlets will have to wait until tomorrow.
