I'm curious though, do you ask all of these questions on multiple forums? How do you not drive yourself insane with constantly fielding so many different kinds of responses?
I think jeromedawg might hold the record for most threads started on these forums now. 631 topics! The next closest I could find was arebelspy at 602 topics started.

You're probably right lol. I start a thread for every new problem I have when it comes to house crap. It's ridiculous. I started a journal for it too. On that note, regarding this stupid panel, I heard back from the power company and they are giving me 2 options basically:

1) Move gas line to the outside AND modify your existing closet to conform to code with the updated panel, which means leveling out the floor of the closet (in which case there's currently a step) and a number of other things to match the dimensions they spell out in their requirements

2) Move/relocate the electric panel/meter outside of the closet which will then require trenching and laying larger conduit...

Both options are completely on my dime. Pick your poison.


smh... surprise after surprise...

Bummer. Option 2 seems to be faster and cheaper. Good luck!

I'm not sure. The other electricians I've spoken with seem to make trenching out to be something that costs thousands. I don't know to what extent I'd have to alter the closet and what that would cost though either... I'm guessing Option 2 would be faster but more expensive and Option 1 would take longer but cost less.
