What are some of projects you fellas are working on, have recently completed ,or plan on working on?

I am currently installing a lamp post to shine some light on our front yard. It's going well so far I dug a 50 foot trench 12 inches deep(this was a pain in the ass), poured a concrete foundation 3ft deep, laid down PVC conduits, ran 14 guage wiring through them and assembled and wired the pole. All I have left is wiring it to a switch and the service panel. I'm a little intimidated by the service panel because I have never worked on one before and don't want to get electrocuted putting my hands where they don't belong. If anyone have any suggestions please holla back.

you really got to get an electrian to install that, namely because many to most insurance companies may not cover any damages if your project damages something. Wink

I've completely gutted my background of vegetation (last year). This year I will completely re-landscape it. I can't start for about two months because we in our 100+ degree season.

The wife of the previous owners was really into plants and bushes and flowers and ... Well, she died about a year before we bought the house and the husband just let it go. It looked like a jungle in the middle of the desert.

I plan to lay flagstone over most of the yard, which will require me to remove about 2 tons of gravel. Then, I'll re-plant alot less vegetation.
It's not that I don't want to hire an electrician, it's that I like the challenge of doing things like this on my own. I will have an electrian look it over and as long as he signs-off on it I will be safe with the insurance company. Thanks for the advise.

I hear you Kweli I have the same situation with my landscaping or the lack of it. I am working on the lamp post now because I am going to dig up our gravel walkway and lay down pavers and since the wiring runs underneath the walkway it had to be done first.
