Re: how much does re-wiring an old house cost?
Rewiring an entire house is a very labor-intensive job. If the house is being lived in at the time, it's even more labor intensive since wiring must be left functional at the end of each day. Materials alone may only be a few thousand, but labor can easily consume five to ten times the cost of materials, and certainly much more costly than for new construction.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
