  • Location is called out on the plans
       •   However, it is best not placed where falling out could result in falling down stairwells
  • An installed access is ideal, but at minimum mark where the opening will be so that the attic light is placed accordingly

    Electricians will be working along all walls and ceilings in the middle of the room
  • Floors should be swept
       •   There will be many electricians in a small space, often using ladders
  • Leave an empty trash can inside the house or nearby
       •   This will minimize the trash and debris to clean up later
No Volunteers in House
  • Keep volunteers outside or in units the electricians aren't working in on the days of the rough-in
Propane and Heaters if Below Freezing
