Rewiring an entire house is a big project, but with some planning and hard work, it's possible to complete in a weekend. Here's how I was able to rewire my whole house in just two days:

Gather the Right Supplies

Rewire One Room at a Time

Handy Tips for Rewiring Success

Final Testing and Inspection

Once all rooms are rewired, do a final check:
- Verify all outlets are wired correctly by plugging in a lamp and testing switches.
- Check for loose wire connections by gently tugging on them. They should be secure.
- Turn on all circuits and test GFCI outlets as well using a outlet tester.
- Replace all switch and outlet covers.
- Turn main breaker back on and plug in appliances to verify proper operation.

Finally, consider having the completed work inspected by the local building department for added safety and peace of mind.

With good preparation and diligence, rewiring a house in a weekend is an ambitious but achievable goal. Just be sure to work safely! Let me know if you have any other questions.
