Too bad you did not have a friend that could have done that wiring upgrade for cost. I put in a separate 200A panel for the the cost of the wire and panel.

lol, had I posted that, there would have been 2x as many comments telling me electricity can kill and it should only be installed by a licensed electrician and inspected by local code authority. I bought a book and looked up codes to do it myself originally, would have been about 30% the cost. In the end I just wanted it done, plus some CYA for home owners insurance. I try to err on the side of doing it “right”, especially with big upgrades like this. I have plans to run 3 more branch circuits myself in the future. 2×240v and another 120.
