Went to Home Depot and got a little bit more wiring supplies.

Ten sticks of 1/2" emt
5 pack of 1/2 emt set screw couplings
5 pack of 1/2 emt set screw connectors
500 foot roll of 12 awg red thhn wire
Bag of 1/2" emt straps

Set me back almost $220

That should not cost that much but I gotta have it.

Time for another update

Wiring on the shop side is now about 95% complete. Need to add a few extension rings to a few junction boxes just to make sure I have enough room for wire fill.

Have about 20 feet of conduit to run to a switch box by the walk door. Then wire the meter base and two 200 amp exterior disconnects and into the two 200 amp panels inside (which are the Square D QO panels involved in a recall) I thought I was buying good shit.

Feeder and conduit for panel in living space I'm holding off on until I'm sure my dividing wall framing passes.

Living space is wired except for feeder for ductless mini split system. Trying to figure out how to mount a exterior light and outlet for my back porch to the tin. Maybe metal roofing screws through the tin into a 2x4 or 2x6 block and surface mount the fixture and outlet?

Been cleaning. It's gotten out of hand in here and honestly I'm embarrassed.

Going to be doing some logging behind the shop in preparation for the septic install. Figured I'd slide the sawmill carriage inside to a safe spot.

Septic install looks like it will run me about $6000

Your building is filling up fairly quick isn't it?

Feels like it but no. I've got a fair amount of shelves and cabinets and benches to bring in. I do feel like I've got a good layout for the machines and benches in mind. I will say I feel like I have a fully equipped shop already. Then if course the sawmill stuff will all be stored in the sawmill shed in an attached minimum 8x12 room.

I think I can still fit one more lathe and a boring mill

A while back I filled out some stuff regarding the Square D QO panels recall. Monday Square D sent out an electrician to check the panels and all is well. While there the election noticed my conduit work and was impressed and asked if I worked in the field. Told him no. He was more impressed. So I feel better about my conduit work.

Have a tentative date of December 12th for my septic system installation.

Once you get the local bureaucrat to sign off on inspections, you can continue to add circuits and plumbing and what they don't know doesn't hurt you.
