Oh wow! I just keep getting farther and farther behind. I started this post 3 weeks ago! I was going to try to keep up with the addition work through posts on a regular basis, but that is just proving to be impossible. In the interest of getting this post done and moving on to other posts about more interesting (?) things, suffice it to say that we hired an electrician to cure three problems for us: run electricity underground to the barn (my black walnut tree knocked the overhead wire out during a storm), replace the pole service so that we would have a shut-off switch to be able to work on the electricity in the home or barn, and move the overhead wire approaching the house.
