Our house is now “dried in”. That means that it doesn’t matter if it rains from this point forward. I really hope it does so that our oak tree out back survives. Weather forecasts aside, the internals of the house are being put in.
We put little thought into to all the wires, pipes, tubes, electrical boxes, light boxes, vents and all other infrastructure behind the walls, but these are the stars–the unsung heroes if you will–of a house. Day in and day out, these guys (and gals for you politically correct) do the work that keeps us warm, lit, clean, entertained, fed, healthy and protected.
This box is where all the power comes to from all over the house. It gets fed by the power company and keeps all the lights on, the hair dryers running, the food cold in the fridge and the tv playing our favorite shows.
