Got Power Hooked Up To The House

Got Power Hooked Up To The House
Please Rate This Article

The power company was out here a couple of days ago to set the power poles.

Today, August 10, 2013 we got the power hooked up to the house.  It might sound like a baby step and not worthy of posting about on a blog.  But I feel different.    Getting the power installed where there has never been power before is a big step.

Tomorrow,  August 11, 2013 I am going to run the power wires from the main breaker box on the pole to the AC unit.  I am also going to install some plumbing lines so we can get the septic tank installed.

When my wife and I m0ved we brought a 10X8 shed with us.  I need to repair some tin on the roof that was damaged during the move, then build a lean-to on the side for storing the tiller and lawn mower.

Things I need to get done:

Power to the house – check
Power to AC – working on it
Fix septic line
Get septic system installed – in the next couple of weeks
Get water run to the house

If you have any questions about the move post them in the comments section below.
