After two intense day's, I'm done with the new and the old electricity in the attic.
Chainsaws and powerlines just don't mix well.
We now have:
The hotel circuit restored, which allows the light in the first attic to be switched in the attic as well as on the first floor. (Phew - this was my biggest fear - not beeing able to restore this)
Integrated lights in the ceiling of the dormer - in both rooms, independently wired.
Three new outlets in the craftroom.
Two "old" outlets in the craftroom restored.
The door between rooms was moved - because the old one was an arched doorway. With the dormer this just does not look right anymore.
Light-switches of both rooms have been moved because of this.
In the utility room I have changed the outlets for the washing machines to be on a different circuit. Number three was just getting too big now. Both machines run now on circuit 1 which was brought up from the bathroom on the first floor.
Two other outlets in the utility room have been restored, and a new one has been installed by the doorway - think ironing board ;-)
Both rooms have functioning ceiling lights now, the second room suffered from an error for the last years - I installed it myself several years ago, and erred with the hotel circuit which was intended then. Oh well, we were using a standing light without even thinking twice about it.
And by the way - the hall light for the first floor? It too has been restored to fully functioning hotel circuit.
I'm really tired, but satisfied with my work!
