For all your electrical needs in Farm, Home, or Remodeling, give Nate a call.

This was my office today. Little bit of digging and building a wall , socially distant from everybody , perfect day

[02/04/20]   Anyone looking to upgrade their garage lighting, kitchen lighting, or shop lighting? Would you like your outlets and switches replaced due to color or just plain old? Do you know about wireless switch options? Give me a call and I’ll see what I can do for you.

Yes I do other work besides trenching. Here is some of the lighting I wired in this freestall barn. The barn isn’t finished yet but the farmer needed it ASAP.

Trench #9 since May. Power to a new freestall barn to run 18 fans, 38 lights, 2 outdoor lights, 2 door openers, 4 waterers. Pulled the 200 amp rated wire thru 180’ of buried 2” pipe.

Trench #8. Power to a new grain bin. Suns shining so mine as well dig.

Shed # 4 also equipped with remotes for outside and inside lights.

Trench #7. Only took half hour to trench 210’ at 2-3’ deep. But it took 2-3 hrs to hand dig where the trench decided to cave in due to such sandy soil.

Trench #6. Complete with gas, electric, tv, internet, drain for attached garage.

What in the hell. If you don’t see any problems with this other than way too much extra wire, then do not attempt any wiring on your own

[08/24/19]   This is the inside of shed wired today. 12 lights putting out 7600 lumens each, 15 outlets on 3 circuits. 1 RV outlet mounted outside

Wired this pole shed today and equipped it with a remote control for the outside light. The remote could be used in the house, in the vehicle, or both

I believe this is trench #5. Wasn’t the easiest one I’ve done with having to dig around 3 gas lines, a septic tank- drain field”nasty dirt “, and the cement walls that barely let my trencher thru. But all went well.

Trench #4. Convert overhead service to underground and get ready for new pole shed.

Trench #3. Replace and upgrade bad underground wire that went bad over winter.

Trench #2. Shed #2

[05/14/19]   Attention people. If you hire a handyman to do miscellaneous work around your house, do not let them do electrical work. I just had a call where the handyman took out a baseboard heater and installed a 110 volt outlet. The heater was wired for 240 volt and now the 110 outlet had 240 volts on it. You will not save money when everything you plug into that outlet blows up. Leave the electrical work to the professional. Serious fire hazards otherwise!!!

First of many trenches for the season. Was pretty wet but still got it done. Beautiful day for trenching.

One of my Fall jobs completed. Called a sand lane used for reusing sand for bedding for dairy cows

[06/07/18]   5 years in business already. Wow that went fast. Thank you to all my customers!!

Who needs to hire an apprentice when you can come up with a genius innovation like this. Wires were going about 60' underground.

Installed 3 camper pedestals for a customer on their property up north. Trenched downhill thru roots and rocks and even thru some damp land. All went very well.

[04/20/17]   Dear Google. Please stop harassing me. If I want your services, I will call you. And for all you other telemarketers that get my number off of here, I will not answer my phone from unknown numbers. So STOP CALLING. thank you

[06/07/16]   Celebrating 3 years in business today. Thank you to all of my family, friends and customers for your support.

My first landscape lighting job courtesy of my in-laws. Pretty cool

There is a professional way and non professional way to splice an underground wire. This is the nonprofessional way. Also, there is a reason we bury wires deeper. Obviously it was hit when sprinkler line was installed. Very dangerous stuff here.

This was an outlet in a milk house that had a space heater plugged into it. Just a reminder to people that if your outlet seems loose or the plug doesn't stay in outlet nice and snug, then this is probably what can happen, especially when plugging in something that draws a lot of power. Outlets do wear out, so be aware and call me if you need any replaced.

Added recessed lights in kitchen. Removed 4' fluorescent light

Added recessed lighting in living room. Replaced 2 existing lights with disc lights that look like recessed

Good thing about working late is I get to see how bright the lights are that I hooked up. Also wired the corn dryer system.

The only rock in a 200' trench. At least I figured out what else the trencher can do. Lifted it right out with chain.

All this just for adding 1 grain bin

I know everyone hates the electrical code I live by but if this outlet were arcfault protected, then this would not have happened.
