I'm new to this and so far in checking out the other threads,I've seen a lot of great information.

I'm building a house overseas in the Philippines. The voltage there is 220. Beyond that I'm a little in the dark.

The house is built of hollow block and built to withstand an earthquake. Now the wiring system has me a little confused here. How would some one wire a house of this type?

Also is there anyway that I can purchase some of the needed items here to use over there?

So here's what I have to get;

1 box PDX wire #12

2 boxes THW wire3.5m #12(?)

3 30pcs Junction boxes.

4 20pcs Utilty box

5 2 rolls flexable hose 1/24

6 2 bags PVC Clamp

7 4 pcs CRT Breaker

8 1pcs 60amp crt breaker

9 10mts flexable hose 3/4 (I have)

10 1pc Entrance cap 3/4

11 1pc staight conector 5/4

12 15pcs Zgang(?) CO Plustype

13 20 pcs swhitches

14 40mts THW Wire #8

15 1pc 6Branches Panel Board

16 10pcs elect tape ( they don't have wire nuts there)

It comes to $443 US.

It's three bedroom house.with a living room kitchen and deck. The entire house is about 11ft by 35ft.

So if anyone has any ideas,I,m all ears as they say.

I would like to know if having a lot of moss in a yard is normal,if not what can be done to get rid or it.
