Dan is busy posting at EKR.......... LOL!:D

Actually , I was watching the Little League World Series . There's a team from Louisiana that is doing pretty well . :)

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming ...
I'm thinking about 4 duplex outlets ( GFCI )to start . Might stick a 30A double pole in there just in case the need arises .

Jeeze Dan, it's okay, it's okay, My moderator wings will cover you at EKR. I don't think you have ever understood that I am rabbitgun, LOL. I'll tell Jimmy or Scott to cut you some slack.. LOL.

Be ready for a 240 load when you get there, and, give them at least 6 to 8 dedicated 120v GFCI's.

JMHO...............

For what it's worth.

Yep ... as many outlets as you can provide .... the more the better.
Nothing worse than guys unplugging someone's extension cord to their tool just so he can plug in his radio or cell phone charger.

You get to see blood pressure rise when that happens:D

Knowing what you do for a living, I must say I found the part about material costs quite humorous.:D

But that is just it. I look at invoices and they are just numbers. I update my estmating database weekly on wire and conduit. I well know what those values are.

It's just when I go to HD and pay the bill out of my pocket it really hits home.
