Before construction begins, an electrical plan is created to ensure that the wiring and outlets are properly placed in the house. The plan takes into account the needs of the homeowner and complies with local building codes and regulations.
Before any foundation work begins, an underground conduit is installed. This conduit will contain the main electrical service line that will provide power to the house. The electrician will also install a grounding system at this time.
The rough-in stage is where most of the electrical work takes place. The electrician will run electrical wires through the walls, ceilings, and floors to the locations specified on the electrical plan. This includes installing wires for lighting fixtures, outlets, switches, and other electrical components. The rough-in stage also involves installing junction boxes, circuit breakers, and other electrical components that will be connected to the main electrical panel.
After the rough-in process is complete, the electrician will install the electrical panel. This panel contains the circuit breakers or fuses that control the electricity flow to the various parts of the house.
