Just dont let an electrican or code inspector near your wiring...

Its not bad, at all. Infact better then 99% of the DIY jobs I have seen. However you are overloading you main pannel with that sub pannel... (I am assuming its 200amp and your main pannel for the house?) Everything looks new enough that I wouldnt worrie about it.

Good job!

The way I understand it you can't have 100 amp sub off of a 200 amp main if you want to maintain a 200 amp service to just the house.

He should have had a seperate set of wires ran from the meter for the 100 amp panel, making it another main but still on the same meter.

Day 12: The drywall begins!!!!


Let there be light, and insulation...



Starting to feel more like a room than a basement..



I know its against procedure but were putting up the drywall on this wall to keep it against the i beam for support (the drywall on the ceiling will squish it against the i beam) since there is no mounting point for the last 8 inches or so...


The office doorway, now I just need to add the two bi fold doors.


Insulation inside the office, it took less insulation to do the entire basement than I thought, 10x50sq ft rolls, I still need one more roll for the last wall where we have yet to run plumbing for the sink.


The last wall:


The vapor barrier and last (11th) roll of insulation, and before anybody asks, yes paper back + vapor barrier and R11 because it is the proper R value for my application that provides the best acoustic properties.


Shot of the two electrical boxes all finished, the breakers now control the overhead lights until we get the switches wired.

Awesome thread.


I budgeted 10k with the 1700 (panasonic ax100u) projector and 600(cardada BW 110") screen and Im comming in a bit under, about 4500 spent now w/o screen and projector, all i have left to purchase is carpet (1000) and cabinets(1000), pluming for sink (100), trim (100?), and paint (300?).

Contractors were giving me bids for 23g on the low end to the high end at 40g's (owens corning basement system, LOL)

My basement is already finished but I've been helping a friend with their whole house renovation (ie. $115k complete gut). But it gives me motivation to help finish it. We started late August and hope to have it livable (basement and main floor) before Christmas.

Thats completely wrong.

There is nothing wrong with adding a 100 or even 125 amp subpanel to an existing 200 main panel.
