Ok. What I'm doing now, is I'm going to drill a hole through this upper plate in order to run my dryer power for my dryer down to a new box that I'm going to install here. So, we just pick a spot and drill a hole. And, we're through. We drilled he holes through the upper plate to bring our wire down through. We have a hundred and ten here and two-forty here for our dryer. I've reinstalled the box. The top of the box is at four feet. And, at this particular point we're going to install a GFI. Which is Ground Fault Interrupt. Some of you may have seen these in your homes. You have a little button for test and then one to bring power back to the unit. These have to be installed anywhere within three feet of a water closet to prevent shock. So, that's where we're at right now.
