   RFC for electricity for the mini-construction site 
per tuesday walk-around with miloh: 
   there are five locations: 
* old toilet room 
* new ada lovelace toilet room 
* oven-sinks-etc area 
* washing station area 
* washing machine area 

   i propose: 
B1: all GFI receptacles are on a single black circuit, 
except oven-sinks-etc area. 
R1: all ceiling lights and fans as well as any 
under-counter lights are on a single red circuit. 
B2: GFI(s) for oven-sink-etc area are on a single 
black circuit (moveable dishwasher plugs into one of 
these, microwave into another...). 
R2: garbage disposal is on a single red circuit. 
220_1: either a black and red or a blue and white 
supply the oven. 
220_2: either a black and red or a blue and white 
supply the cooktop on the island. 
220_3: either a black and red or a blue and white 
supply the washer and dryer. 
220_4: either a black and red or a blue and white 
supply the photo development machine (that may be 
in with the washer and dryer or out in everyone's 
way outside of the darkroom. 

   possible exceptions: B2 may become B2A and B2B, 
separate circuits; washer and dryer may require 
separate 220 circuits. 

   miloh requests building out new runs before 
tearing out old runs. smart. 
   jim hopes nobody puts sheetrock over the existing 
electrical runs before we can fix them.
