last week i passed my rough electrical inspection – enough to close the walls in. i have been working on this quite steadily since february, and it is probably what i will remember the most about this project.

many nights in mid winter i would head out at 7 or 8pm and work till 10 or later. a mind can get stuck in weird places, carving out a room of light at a time from the pitch black, temperatures in the single digits, and absolute silence. i could have been in outer space or a tomb, but nothing terrestrial. nothing life like.

it also turns out that wiring photos aren’t very compelling. best just keep my head down.

i ended at the beginning. moving the first wire i put in to the other side of this bay, making room for a light switch in a closet.

the insulators are here today and covering all my work. hopefully these wires can all stay buried.
