Basement Electric Plan – Design Software makes it easy!Before you strap on the electric tool pouch and fire-up your wire strippers and cordless drill you need a plan of attack for wiring your basement project. You need a basement electric plan to follow.

Now before you start to panic about designing your own basement electric plan, I have to tell you it’s so damn simple…putting it bluntly!

I made you a quick video to show you how to do it! In this video I will totally design an electric plan for a basement of one of my clients using a drop-dead simple computer program anyone can buy at the local big-box electronic stores.

Watch this video now and then get cracking on your own electric design plan…It’s cake!

I normally have the following electric circuits on every basement project:

  • 2 to 3 –  12/2 wire outlet circuits
  • 2 to 3 –  14/2  wire lighting circuits
  • 2 – 12/2 GFI outlet circuits (Bathrooms, Wet bars, Laundry areas, etc.)
  • 1 – 12/2 “Double 20 amp Electric Heating circuit

Other electric diagram items that your code officer may want noted on the electric plan are:

  • Smoke Detector Locations
  • GFI outlets labeled

If your planning on doing your own electric I have a complete step-by-step electric series inside the members area. The series teaches you rough-in electric as well as finish electric to get your electric project 100% from A to Z.

Good luck with your electric design plan!
