Hi, just following up on this thread.
The work was completed as contracted a couple of weeks ago. The guy originally estimated being at the house for 10 hours or so, but managed to get everything done in about 6 1/2 hours.
Very clean job, and as he stated when he did the estimate, the only patch work I'll have to do is in 2 small places in the garage. Everything passed inspection and our kitchen is good to go electrically!
