    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.

    He did do a very nice job. I Have a 100 am in the house and have just got my mm 252, so I really need to put in my 200amp that I've had for 7 months now.
