    On your Cat6 actully very simple to tell how much you used. 1000' per box and wire has footage on it. In this box l have used 450' and have 550' remaining.

    And your Game room is looking great.

    If I remember correctly when I did my garage the electrician said 6 outlets per breaker was code? On your outlets you could take them back and exchange them, I always seem to make more then 1 trip to Lowes when doing projects.

    I do have one? On your outlets it looks like you made up pig tails or little jumpers to wire nut them to the wire? Why not connect them directly to the wire? I have never seen that done (the pig tails).

    Quoted from Chosen_S:

    I use the pigtails to do all of the micro wiring work in my warm house
    And it makes the install clean.

    I have seen connecters like that on ceiling fans but the first I have seen them on outlets. Old dog just learned new trick.

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    Man, good on you for doing this project, but I'm really glad I'm not your neighbor.

    I like doing stuff like that I would be over as much as I could helping out then hopefully hanging out when it was all done.

    Is there away to ask about it since you did your planning before 2015 and see if it can still be done as it was part of the original plan?

    So I’m going with glass window garage door on second floor so you can open it up when you want and have or will have a safety railing

    So the door on the second floor that leads to the roof of your house? Got to ask. And are you roofing that (guessing) porch on your house looks like Tarpaper but no shingles yet?

    Staircase, inside the game room, outside the game room or both? I have some ideas/Envisions about your Lyft kind of want to see where you go with it.

    That patio looks like a fun place to hang out and that game room is going to be even more fun.

    So the real question is how many times have you rode it up and down? I would be a test dummy if I were closer.

    Okay so i had to go back and look through some pictures, so where did the lift go? I’m only seeing that 1 upper door. It looks like that was the door where the lift was now I see a spiral staircases. What gives? Am I missing something?

    And looks great.

    Is that an extension to the tower? Will games be in there to? Or is this a area for the wife?
