This may be impossible to answer without more specifics, but here goes... My husband and I are considering buying a house from an Amish family. At one time there was elecricity in the house but I am sure the wiring is very old and would need to be replaced. Originally we were not going to put electric in but the reality of the extra work involved of living without it has set in. I am keeping my job in the "city" and will have an 1 1/2 hour commute and don't think I will be able to keep up without it. The house is 3,000 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 2 baths, with a coal stove. Aside from the wiring, I would like to put in an electric baseboard heating system as a back-up for the coal stove. There is a pole within 20 feet of the house. How much should I anticipate in spending on this work? Thanks in advance.
