I have maybe 6-8 new houses in all stages going at any one time. I've noticed certain boxes lately, arc faults for the last few months (getting better now) hard to find. Everything else is obtainable, just have to pay a considerable amount more.

Forgot about panels, brands like BR are harder to get than homeline, but homeline dual functions are harder to get than BR.

Just got a quote for 3" sch 40 PVC, it was $420 per 100'
sch 80 was $610 per 100'
Price only good for today and 4-6 weeks to get it
Yep. Needed 300’ on this house I’m working on at $4/ft.


Also, 12/2 hit $0.64/ft here today.

CES in Ocala should be able to route a truck to your nearest branch there with the cable. They changed the process last year where you have to call your home branch and order it, and they should be able to get it from Ocala to you, and it’s typically overnight between branches that close.

Thanks!

My home branch (Toccoa Ga) seems reluctant to do that nowadays so I didn't think to ask, paid freight on LED's recently on what I thought was a simple transfer between branches

Wish counterpeople had offered
