"Or, maybe, my reasoning is just all wet."

How many puns are you gonna put in this discussion. It's already heated for goodness sake!

I appreciate the intriguing discussion going on here. I'm gaining a lot of knowledge, so thanks!

Yep, very useful.  I tell you what seeing that socket box full of saw dust was a revelation.  Never thought about that and as explosive as dust is ...I have no idea why I didn't think of it. 

I'm going to ask how would one fireproof electrical in a sawmill building.  Heck I have not even bought a mill yet but ..planning planning.    Not just electrical but the notes on air compressors too.  How to increase safety of the building.

Ok about the sprinklers.
This is new to me and was shutoff when I buy this home in November, and home inspector did not dare to test it.
I have never seen a residential installation, now I own one.. :P

I think I will have to get professional to check it out before turning on the the breaker to the system.  Maybe they can pressure test for any leaks.

I do have dual smoke detectors each floor; one set are hardwired in and the other is part of home alarm system.  If the home alarm goes off, you get lots of help.  help_me
