Am I missing something? Does anyone else see the wire nuts at the top of the panel? It would look cleaner without splicing. Otherwise very nice.

Sometimes it's unavoidable. Furthermore, there's nothing wrong with splicing in a panel. It's a trade myth that it's a forbidden practice.

Wait. Let me get this straight, you're gonna try to sell the owner a new home run (in a finished house) because one wire' s a little too short to reach the breaker? Really?

If the wires don't reach, it's the best solution.

I think we're being trolled. Just a hunch though.

A large majority of Canadians here will disagree with you.

I am Canadian and I do not disagree. There is nothing wrong with splicing in a panel, if you are using that splice to lengthen the wire that is.

How is the whole Amish electrician thing working out? Didn't think there was much of a market there.

Was having some fun with it. I'm from amish country so it's fitting. Can you imagine a homeowners dismay if an amishman would show up to wire his new home!

Only if it is listed for it.

I use butt splices instead of wire nuts.
