I hate doing electrics at the best of times. I always underestimate the time it will take, but this time I really loused it up. Thinking safety I started wiring the whole shed with 30a cable, despite only having 20A junction boxes… there was just no way the big fat wires were going into the skinny little wire clamps… after 2 and a half hours I started to get really frustrated and actually considered soldering the buggers together. At which point I took a break… Never, ever allow yourself to get frustrated with electrics. I then calmly pulled the wire out and replaced the lighting section with proper lighting cable. Got the whole loom in within 15 minutes. Quite happy with armoured cable, isolation breakers and switching. P*ssed off at the time lost though… Was hoping to get the outside wall on today, gonna have to wait for Friday now.

    I won’t even ask whether those professional installed electrics come with a certificate or not… 😉

    I’m sure I can come up with one if required 😉
