Actually, there is no basement or crawl space. The kitchen is on a slab. The wiring will be run thru the wall behind the counters. Does that affect your answer?
Okay, well yes and no. Is it being run through the attic space and then down? are they panning on putting in a junction box ? depends on how the line is being run to be honest. A dedicated line would run all the way from the breaker box with its own breaker. if its necessary to run the length of a wall you may want to have the electrician there before even the cabinets go in. (so if he need to make holes in the sheet rock they can be covered easily. ) have you spoken to the electrician yet on where he's running the line ?
this is what i was afraid of when i asked the question.. My house is so screwy that i can't even describe it properly. There is a second floor and no attic. (This house was built in '75 by two women and is very rustic and CRAZY, lol).I dont know how the electrician plans to do it. He came one day and looked it over really good and will do the work another day. He has cancelled on 3 dates since,and i am a little panicked about the timing of the countertops and wiring. I'm sorry for this convoluted question! The countertops are scheduled for installation on 9/13 and thats why i am asking.aaarrrrgggghhhh!
