Geez I wish I had noticed this earlier...

I seem to have sheetrocked over a few outlets. My hands were still hurting so I've been going around putting all the outlets and switches in. I'm not going to put in the ceiling fans and lights until the floor is sanded because the dust is going to get everywhere but if I get everything covered I can get a permanant power inspection before the close out and get rid of the power pole in the front yard.

Half the boxes are full of plaster so it takes a while and when I had finished the dining room the last outlet didn't have power. I was wondering why I didn't have another outlet in the corner. I really don't know why I needed ten outlets in the dining room but it seemed like I would have stuck one in the corner. I tried using my stud finder since it detects AC to but it had trouble since the wall is plywooded. I ended up hotwiring the last outlet and using the meter from the other side of the wall and ended up with a section about a foot long that had to have been close to the box and then I started poking it with nails like a voodoo doll...

I walked around the house after this and I think I covered up two in the kitchen as well.

I went and got this thing that puts a signal over a wire and then you trace it with a reciever which will help alot when I try and unscrabble all the network wiring.

I haven't tried it yet but for $28 I had to get it...
