Are you in the UK? If so electrical regs and appropriate reading is a must as you need to be aware of what you can and can't do legally.

Hi Puma

I'm afraid I agree with Horny.

Amongst other things I'm a qualified Spark and I seriously would not recommend any large scale electrical work. Your DIY skill may be top notch, but if anything were to go wrong and your insurance company found out it was your work, you would find yourself in a real mess.

You could have a read at these:

TalkScrewfix Forum - Electricians' Talk

Home - About the Security Installer Community - Security Installer

I don't advise you to post, some Tradesmen are very arrogant and eat non-professionals for breakfast. If you do post choose your words carefully.

Your other alternative is move to Scotland! No part P :D
