This is the electrical plan that I did, I wanted to have outlets on every corner of the house and sufficient lights on every rooms. I have revised the initial floor plan to transfer the bathroom door and remove the other windows. We need a building permit before the city electrician install the wiring. My wife’s uncle who’s an architect, recreated the floor plan and gave us the blue print with his signature, we submitted the documents to the city hall and granted us the building permit.
Small orange pvc pipes that will be use as electrical conduit.
These are the materials that will be used for electrical wiring. The most common are the #12 and #14 stranded and solid wires. My father’s friend who’s a licensed electrician told me that the best brand is Phelp Dodge but only few hardware stores have this brand in the province. We once saw this in Wilcon Home Depot along C5, and they are selling it in retail per meter and per box.
Utility boxes that will be embedded to the walls and the temporary light receptacles. We will replace some of these receptacles with a more decent light fixtures when the interior ceiling is complete.
Panel board with 8 slots for circuit breakers.
Electrical conduit and utility box embedded to the wall.
Panel board cemented to the wall.
All the electrical conduit connected to the panel board will make their way through the ceiling. Ate Day advise the contractor to install the wiring in the ceiling instead of lining the conduit on the floor, because worst case scenario if the conduit breaks and we have to fix the wiring, we have to smash the floor just to get through the wiring.
Electrical conduit and light receptacle in the ceiling.
The connection from the electric post will go through this pipe to the panel board.
We also have 4 outdoor light fixtures in every corner of the roof.
More electrical conduit on the ceiling.
Switch and outlet installed! These are low cost switches, if I have a choice I would definitely go for the branded like Panasonic, which are more durable.
The panel board with 6 circuit breakers and 1 main breaker. There’s still one blank board for back up.
This is the door that we bought, it was made of Narra wood. Although, Narra are extremely rare and considered as endangered, we still wanted to have one of this precious materials.
The door frame has the same materials as the door, in a local dialect it is called “Amba”. These will be use as the main door.
When treated with wood preserves and staining, the Narra door will turn into a shiny golden brown.
At the back door, the material that we choose is made of Mahogany, high in quality but less expensive. We are worried about the ants/anay that will infest the weak woods of the doors, but someone told us, that these insects only feed on woods that are not moving, like the walls or wood beams, so we don’t have to worry about our doors.
To secure the lot area, we put a chain link fence for the meantime.
