      Neither does the burgler..

      I first saw this on a new house being built by a friend in Jefferson County Colorado. He was an electrician from Chicago and was having a major pizzing match with the codes department. (Circa 1976)

        Ls2cam, you're no idiot. It's code in some areas of USA too. You had a liscensed electrician install your panel and I think he did a darn good job of it. That looks like a quality upgrade. Especially compared to the 'before' pic.

        They're put outside so the fire department can get to them in an emergency.
