First I'll say that I bought this house with a 7 year plan. This is not a forever home, it's simply to park cash and buying power and invest in myself with property. That's important because, I'm not trying to be cheap, I just feel sinking 3-4k+ into specialty electrical work adds no value to this home for resale, and is not a feasible expense for me right now. I bought a Tesla recently, and maybe jumped the gun in the sense that I didn't think it'd be this hard to get ahold of electricians, or get good honest estimates out of the ones that did call back (assuming the good guys are all tied up and not taking or returning calls haha). I even had two guys bail completely after seeing the pictures/understanding the job! AGGHHHH :cursing: Here's my situation: I've got enough space to yank an unused 30 amp and replace it with a 50 amp, setting aside the existing wiring and doing new wire of course. The 30 amp is a dryer outlet in the house that we don't plan on using. The real issue is the main box above couldn't be further from my garage (~40 feet). Two electricians that came out so far have wanted to trench in some way, one wanted to trench the entire length of the yard with a bobcat!!!!!! :crying: The other wanted to trench the distance between the house and the garage (13 feet). Currently there is a highly questionable, most likely illegal, conduit that provides basic 110v to the garage for outlets/lights/garage door. This obviously has to go. What I don't understand is why I can't run 6/3 Romex through the attic as is being done now for the 110v, and then get a much better/stronger/safer conduit to bridge the home and garage? Once I'm in the garage it's cake, and fishing the wire down the wall in the house shouldnt be bad either... the main box is on the master bedroom wall. Why won't the electricians do this? What am I missing? Can I do this myself? My daily commute is 50 miles round trip, so I can't imagine needing to plug in to charge for more than 2 hours tops at midnight anyway... Please help!
