Default New to renovation wiring in Alberta

Hi everyone...bought my first home and she needs some love! Mann...everything is 80 years old..I think. Windows are just completed, working on flooring and electrical as soon as mud and drywall around the windows is complete. This is my life for the next couple months...wife is really anxious as baby is on the way and house is a disaster...HELP!:sur prise:I am capable, just not knowledgable. Mechanical Engineering Technologist graduate, specializing in Robotics and Automation. 5 kids, one on the way. Currently unemployed.

This isn’t a DIY site but I have some advice. An 80 year old house in Alberta is a money pit. Make it livable even if that means a painted floor and a plywood counter top. A baby doesn’t care if the house is pretty.

Home renovations and unemployment don’t mix. This house will bury you, your wife and your six kids if you continue.

Oh yeah, get a snip job. I did it after two kids, no regrets.
