Electrical conduits ready for ramming
This is the third of three posts dealing with how to run electrical services in a rammed earth wall. Because the question is asked so frequently, I thought it would be valuable to illustrate the process as thoroughly as possible. The previous two posts showed electrical boxes being prepared and installed against the formwork. The photo in this post shows the boxes installed and the PVC conduits for the wiring. These three boxes provide 110 AC, telephone, cable, and CAT 5 for computer wiring. Each box is connected via the conduit with others along the wall or to the bond beam above.
