New Outlet (and Banishing Dust Bunnies)

On Sunday afternoon, we turned off all of the computers and removed the entire computer stack (computers, monitors, keyboards, and the table on which they all sit) in order to make room for an electrical expansion project that Lisa wanted to get done.

New Outlets

Using surface-mounted conduit, Lisa converted the single two-plug outlet at left to a "starter box" and then ran a line to a new four-plug outlet. When time permits, she will then run a line up the wall to put in a new light fixture and a wall switch to control it.

While we had all of the computers and wiring taken apart, we also took the opportunity to vacuum and dust the area. As anyone who has computers probably knows, it's difficult to keep the nest of wires from during into a haven for dust bunnies. Excluding the time we had to run over to Lowe's to buy some additional parts, I think that it took more time to disassemble, clean, and reassemble the multiple computers than it took to install the new outlet.
