Acknowledgments of Wiring a House PDF

No one person creates a book. It is the accumulation of many hands and minds. I would like to thank Julie Trelstad,

who guided me through the conception of the original edition many years ago, and all the people at Taunton who have worked so hard to make this Wiring a House 4th Edition by Rex Cauldwell book the great success that it has been over the years.

It should be noted that a work of this kind is very technical, and it is very easy for errors to slip by editors even though a great deal of effort has been taken to find such.

If you note any problems, have questions, or would like something added or changed, you can email me at [email protected]

It should also be noted that the way houses are wired on the East Coast may not be the same as on the West Coast and that all areas do not adopt the same exact code.

Even under the NEC, I have to wire differently in each county I work in. Many companies helped with this Wiring a House 4th Edition by Rex Cauldwell book by providing photographic material and technical information about their products.

I would like to give heartfelt thanks for their help to Jim Gregorec of Ideal Industries,
