How To Rewire Your 120 Year Old Farmhouse Without Burning It Down

I recently purchased a 120 year old farmhouse that needed a complete rewiring. As an amateur DIYer, I was intimidated but determined to rewire the old house myself without any disasters. Here's how I did it:

Assess the Existing Electrical System

Create a New Wiring Plan

Install New Wiring and Components

Add the Finishing Touches

Taking the time to prepare, follow code, use caution around electricity, and get inspections gave me the confidence to successfully rewire my old farmhouse. The new electrical system will meet our needs safely for years to come. Let me know if you have any other old home rewiring questions!
