In this Badge Bit, you will install a code compliant exterior grade outlet. Often older houses have those silly exterior outlets with flappers over each socket that don't look like they really keep the rain out. Well, they don't. We can do better!
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- install an exterior outlet with a code compliant box
- includes a cover to keep a plugged in extension cord dry and safe
- this BB is to install the outlet and the code compliant cover, if you're just putting a cover on an existing box, that doesn't count for this one. But do it anyway!
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
- the location before you start the job
- the wiring underway
- the installation done showing the outlet working correctly with a circuit tester
See ya later boys, I think I'm in love. Oh wait, she's just a tiny ad:
