The electrical panel replacement was one of the first projects that I wanted to complete.
The old panel was pretty scary with things such as multiple 15 amp circuits fed from single 30 amp fuses,
and little subpanels spread out to feed additional circuits.
Heather's father has a good friend that's a licensed electrician, so we hired him for the afternoon.

The finished project. Now instead of a 60 amp fuse box with some dangerous wiring, I now have a
modern 150 amp Square D panel installed. Thanks Steve & Harry!
