Home Office Remodel Phase II: Electrical

Well the electrical isn't quite finished yet so I will wait until I get that done which will probably be tonight or tomorrow. But I thought I would post a couple of pictures of what I found when I started opening the ceiling to run the wire for the outlets.

This first pic is from right above where the desk will be.

Dad and I opened the ceiling and the wires on the left fell down just like you see them, and then we noticed the white wire coming out of the box. We grabbed Dad's testers and Yep, just as we thought the wire was hot. The previous "electrition" and I use that term loosely clipped the wire pulled the jacket out so nothing would short and left it sitting there.

Ok I will admit, that was moderately disturbing, but what came next was just down right wrong.

This was one of the craziest things I had ever laid my eyes upon. I could go into explination of all of the wires but I still get lost trying to tie it all together. I know that one wire comes in with power another is for the light which is right near by another is for an outlet on the other side of the room, and the last is for the igniters on the furnace. But that has all been cleaned up too, with more pics forth coming. So stay tuned for Phase II: pt 2 Finished Electrical and Phase III: Phone.

Make sure your home office furniture fits your work style. The new modular office furniture on the market these days is very functional. My productivity has increased multifold after I purchased a new desk and filing system. With new office furniture I have found the transition from working at the business office to a home office has become easier. I have also become more productive. There are many places to buy online. I found the quality and value of the furniture you can get to be above my expectations. Check them out if you get the opportunity.
