Brvy, you ever done any electrical work? My house* has a bunch of outlets that aren't grounded or GFI and I'd like to fix that. Part of my basement ceiling is exposed and the house isn't huge or anything so I don't think running new wires would be too difficult to do. I'm just a little leary about hooking up to the box as well as making sure it's up to code. Do electricians do consulting where they just come and make sure it's all good before the inspector?
One of my best friends out here is a master electrician (He was a lead electrician on the new Bucks arena in Milwaukee). As we get closer, I'll ask him if he would like to come up with me.
Side Note: You can absolutely pay electricians to sign off on your electrical work.

Good to hear. You sounded miserable in sales.
You ainít lyin, Brian
This place had been good for the 3.5 years I worked here, but we just got bought and it was gonna get real, so iím Glad I got a chance to make a move. Still a 10 minute commute, work in a nice little downtown area with lots of bars, breweries and restaurants All good. 2018 has been good to ole Ron so far
I got nothing much to offer. Took a new job out of the branch, finally. Now a bsa analyst. Itís kind of some of your dream jobs, minus the salary. I have a cube, can work with ear buds in. I get a spreadsheet report with most of my work on it every morning. Itís enough to keep me busy all day. Too busy. No more screwing around half the day. I can kind of come and go as I please. Anywhere from 7:45-9am and as long as I get my 8hrs in and get my work done, iím good. Wouldnít mind working one day from home. Weíll see.
My phone doesnít ring and nobody talks to me. Itís a new feeling, but so far, so good.
Still doing lots of work at the new house. Coming together nicely
napa let me give you some advice that really worked well for me.
what's the first thing you do after you buy a new house?
Unless you've owned a house before or unless the condition of a room, roof, or other item is dilapidated and NEEDS replaced don't do any sort of remodel for minimum 6 months (better a year) unless you've baked the reno cost into your mortgage loan. See how you live in it before making any significant or structural changes so you KNOW (not think) what you want to do and only have to do it once. a reno should add value not jeopardize it. like a murphy bed, it might be too kitschy and could hurt resale. protect ya neck son.
I got no problem with that. A couple trips back I got a straight razor shave from an old russian broad. Just think babushka but with too much makeup and a bad dye job and you're probably not far off. Got my shave, tipped her ok and went about my trip. Later than night I'm walking by the long bar in MGM and there she is, I grab a drink from the bar say hi and she proceeds to try and wrap me in in some kinda bear hug telling me to stick around. I batted her hands away practically yelled NOPE and hustled my ass outta there.
I used to be a quantity over quality guy but that changed in my late 20s.
