More wiring

I dropped down to the states to pick up the connections so I can plug the house it.  While I was down there I picked up a box of network cable.  I'll be using it connect sensors throughout the house and in the doors and windows.  Did I mention I plan on doing a little home automation?  More on that in the coming months.

On Sunday I ran the network cable and started wiring up the wall outlets, soon I'll be able to get rid of all the extension cords.

This is the point that all the wires will pass through the vapour barrier into the interior wall.  It looks like a mess but they are all labelled.  The yellow wire is a 20 amp line for a electric heater.  The three white wires are for the room plugs/exterior plugs/upstairs plugs.  The black wires are DC lines from the solar panels.  The thin grey wires and blue wire are data and low power DC for the home automation.

All of the in wall wiring is done so I can move onto insulation now :-D

Expenses to date: $11,367
