Wiring A House Image - Click to enlargeWhen was the last time you saw a beautifully illustrated book on installing electrical wiring? Probably never. That's because most books on wiring are deeply technical in nature and wander into commercial and industrial electrical applications. Imagine a book that only teaches house wiring to the latest code, yet is so full of beautiful color photographs you'll want to read it at breakfast.

Beautifully illustrated with full-color photos, this practical book takes a step-by-step approach in showing you how to install code-approved wiring for residential homes. Starting with wiring the service entrance to grounding and wiring rooms in both new construction and renovation work, install fuses and circuit breakers, how to install and test ground-fault interrupters, receptacles and boxes, switches, and fixtures, and how to wire appliances. Also includes how to install stand-by generators.
