Thanks for your electrical wiring question Tamika.

How to Draw Wiring Diagrams for a Home Electrical Project

  • This question has me very curious:  How can you be wiring a house if you do not already have a wiring diagram?
    • I ask this because the electrical layout diagram or set of blueprints are usually drawn up and should have been approved before you begin to wire a home.
    • If  is a school project then you may be starting with a empty home layout where you are required to add the electrical devices and circuits.
