    Default Temporary construction power

    As some of you might remember , my son is starting to build his house . My question is on what type of breaker box and outlet set up should we install for temporary power . He has power now but the box he used is too small and not condusive to any expansion . It has one 240v and one 120v duplex receptacle . Each fed from it's own breaker and no room to add another . I would like to have about four 120v receptacles and room for a 240v if the need should arise . Any ideas ? Pics or links would be great .

    LOL, My spies were out....... You did a search at EKR on this..

    Just get a little 12 circuit panel. Maybe match his breaker type so you can reuse them.

    No , I thought about EKR , but didn't post there . Wasn't me .

    I thought about a small box like that with some " Bell boxes " and flex , etc . I have scrounged most of the stuff except for the box .

    Do you think the carpenters will need 240v for anything ?
    If so , which receptacle should I mount ?
