If they are going to rewire the entire house anyway, you might consider having separate "zones" set up where one circuit breaker controls power to one zone.
Yep, that's part of the plan. Up until now, all the electrical upgrades were done piecemeal. The house was built before electricity was even invented. When we moved in there were actually two electric boxes next to one another. The downstairs was on a circuit-breaker box. The upstairs used old tube and knob wiring that ran to a box with glass fuses that blew quite often. We put in central air, had the tube and knob wiring disconnected (though some of it still remains within the walls because it can't be fished through the plaster and lathe), and everything wired into one box. Only BP's room though, which we gutted completely, is up to current standard code with outlets every so many feet; all the other rooms upstairs only have one outlet. Though the wiring downstairs was more modern, it's still not quite right; things don't loop like they should. I think it was a DIY job by Mr. Fix-It, who lived in the house for 50 years, and did all kinds of strange updates.
When it's all done, everything will be code...if it ever gets done. Electrician cancelled again - we were second on the schedule for yesterday, but they were still at the first job - what the electrician called "the house from hell". Meanwhile, we are stuck in purgatory.
You know, everytime I see that I have to remind myself you're talking about plants and not wolves.
They got the name lupine because of wolf-like growing characteristics; they grow in "packs", and because they typically grow in infertile soil where not much else will, the ancients thought they "robbed" the soil of nutrients, like wolves rob herders of their flock.
Plan for the worst, but pray for the best.
We have no delusions that this is going to be anything less than a nightmare.
BTW: Is one of the rooms easily convertable to a nursery? Just asking.
That's kind of a rude question, don't you think? But no. I am getting a closet though!
