Feeling Grounded?

At some point after the building’s initial construction in 1955, someone went to the trouble of wiring in a bunch of 3-prong grounded plugs for window-rattling, energy sucking air conditioner units. They’re just about the only grounded outlets in the building. And we’re not going to do air conditioning (Actually, with pooled electricity billing, it’ll be an interesting community discussion as to whether or not the family units can do their own AC systems… and if so, whether they need to pay extra into the utility fund…) This is roughly what all of the new electrical systems will look like in the building — conduit dropped from the ceiling to new three-prong outlets on the walls. Ah, the joys of old buildings. If only Tom Vila were here.
