Running The Electricity

By Amigatec, Jan 11, 2012 | |

    I used my mini-tiller to dig the trench. (Here I was using it to dig a trench from the house to the garden so i could run conduit to control the water I use. But that's another project.)

    Started at the corner of the shed...

    Down to the fence and another trench along the fence.

    [​IMG]

    Used 1" conduit in the trench.

    [​IMG]

    Used 100' of 10/2 w/ground and glued the connections.

    Used a fish to pull the wire.

    Started here.

    [​IMG]

    Pulled it in sections

    Around the corner.

    Along the fence.

    Around the second corner.

    And under the fence. I also brought the wire up at the garden so I can have power out there as well. (The second conduit is for water controller for the garden.)

    Continued from the garden to the coop.

    [​IMG]

    I had enough wire to make it.

    [​IMG]

    I added a 90* box at the shed.

    A couple at the garden and one at the Coop.
