The goal was to remove the K&T so that we could add a lot more insulation into the attic.
Our knob and tube looked something like this, except buried in 6" of nasty, rock-wool insulation..
Although the house had been upgraded to brekers in the 1970s, they had retained the old fuse panel to run the knob and tube. This panel was completely removed.
|This original panel was 30 amp capacity for the whole house. Today 200 amp is the norm.|
|Inside the garage a vintage fuse box led to an udersized junction box.|
|A real breaker panel for the garage.|
