    Would be nice if you listed the materials used. Great video though

    By code, you are required to have at least 6” of conductor sticking out of an electrical box. I would never cut my wires any less.

    Do I mount the blue outlet box on the siding like they did or on the house under the siding ? Does it matter? I’m using a cover like these they installed

    Twist wire nuts along with electrical tape are the best way to go. Don’t use that new crap! They come loose

    Is the pigtail for tamper resistance??

    You should be using a weather-resistant gfci if it’s outdoors as well.

    Splendid! So useful! Bravo!

    Why can’t I find any gfi’s that are clearly rated for outdoor use in Canada? Are we supposed to use this junk for one year then throw them away when the don’t work anymore. Depending on the box to make these things weatherproof is not proper.

    if the receptacle has an eclosure its doesnt have to be weather resistant?

    Does it need something like silicone sealant, or is that rubber on the cover enough?

    Perfect. Excellent. Clear, concise, and complete. Thank you!

    This is the first how-to electrical video that I have watched where the comment section hasn’t been pelted by the internet expert crowd on how this guy’s house is going to burn to the ground.

    It’s it 6 inches of wire slack according to NEC code?

    What is he mounting the box to? Is it just through the sheetrock or did he mount it to a stud?
