Volunteer Work Day 4

October 11th, 2020

The fourth volunteer work day was a continuation of the day before. There is alot involved in re-wiring a house which includes not just the act of pulling wire but also tracking, tracing, and removing old miscellaneous wire and mapping out new lines to panel outside.

Black Thorn is in a very old house built in 1908. Those were the days when homes had gas lighting. How many times the house had electrical work done over last hundred years is incalculable and the quality of the work is inscrutable. Some of the wiring was a bizarre, byzantine web, not unlike a den of biting snakes, that took a long time to separate and trace back to the panel.
