    Default electrical support

    My question is - are these sufficient supports for 100 amp services? If they were 200 amp, for instance, would 2X10s be needed? Maybe a S.E. should be called for "further evaluation"?

    John:

    You have shamed me! I would have never considered the necessary 2x support.

    Great picture.

    oh gosh those two post should be painted with fire proof paint, set 48 inches into the ground and there should be a fire stop halfway up, plus a outdoor smoke detector with a water fountain nearby for a drink of cool water

    John, I hope you also mentioned that those 2x4s should be GFI 2x4s due to the exterior installation.
