[ad#block]Question: I have a house out in the country. My dad is old and lives on a fixed income so I have an old house next to mine where he can live. Only problem is no electricity in old house and the electrical company charges too much to connect him. I had a manufactured home on the other side with electricity connected to my house and it worked perfectly with no problems for about five years, but then I sold it. I was thinking of doing the same thing to the old house, but don’t know if there will be enough electricity for both houses because old house is twice as big as manufactured home. Of course I will hire professional electrician like I did for manufactured home. Can I get some input?

This electrical question came from: Rene, a Homeowner from Harlingen, Texas
