Re: Wiring Books
I personally like "Wiring Simplified". It is clear and easy to understand and will walk you through everything from setting the main panel to installing the last cover plate. With each new addition of the NEC code book, Wiring Simplified gets updated to reflect the changes.
Canuk's idea of working with the electrician to take care of the rough in is also an excellent way to reduce costs and still get the job done right.
Good luck with your project, let us know how it goes.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
