    We often take for granted that a light will illuminate when we flip a switch
    or that there will be an electrical outlet in a convenient location when
    we want to use a hair dryer. The fact that you do not notice the design
    of the lighting and electrical system when you are in a building indicates
    that the designer has done a good job anticipating the needs of the occupants.
    The electrical system must be designed and constructed according to the
    applicable building codes and regulations, but it should also be designed
    with the end user in mind.

    1. Take notes on Electrical Systems

    2. Review common Electrical Symbols  Common Electrical Symbols

    3. Review Electrical Codes  Residential Electrical Codes

    4. Apply to your H4H house:  Duplicate floor plan
                                               Rename it Electricla Plam
                                               Using Visibility Graphic Overide- Hide furniture and entourage
