Always Learning

I have contemplated over the last few years of finishing the basement myself.  Where I live, very few permits are required.  I have built barns and lean-tos.  I have done most of the electrical work in the garage and barn.  One thing I have learned is… there is more to learn.  I should not have had to learn this, but do not touch the backplane of a 200-amp panel.  It doesn’t “hurt” per say, but it will hose you up for a while.  With that being said, we have hired a contractor to do the bathroom and rough framing downstairs, and watching him work is like watching a master artist paint an incredible scene.  I have learned so much in the past few weeks, it is unbelievable.  I also learned that if I would have finished the basement myself, it would have been complete shit.
