Video: Electrical Rough-in

Tools: Drill w/ 3/4 inch bit,wire cutters,cordless drill

Skill level:7/12

Doing the electrical rough-in is not physically difficult but it can be time consuming. It also requires some knowledge of electrical codes and specs. If you do not have some electrical knowledge I would recommend having an electrician show you what to run and where. Some electricians don"t mind having you do the rough in and then they come finish it up. This would be true for a small renovation or garage but not likely a large reno.

As always if you are not comfortable trying this... DON'T . Hire a pro instead. See also Installing a light switch and pot light video, and Installing an electrical receptacle video.

Thanks for watching!
