How to Wire a Bedroom Remodel Project
I'm changing out my home fuse box to a circuit box.
Additional Info: I am doing a master bedroom remodel. My home was built in 1968 so the electric service to the bath is antiquated.
It is the same throughout our home, so I would appreciate any advice you can render to help me not to do things twice.
We will have a simple jetted tub and several shower heads in a walk in shower, wall sconces, chandelier and the usual switches and outlets.
