I'm fininshing our basement (about 1200 sqft)and am ready to run the wiring; however, the current breaker box is completely full. Is there a somewhat painless way of adding additional breaker capacitiy?

hello tkeoki,
u have a couple of options here.
1. install tandom breakers if they r avalabel for your panel.(a singel slot breaker that has 2 poles on the same phase)fine for 120 but will not work for 240. gain 1 circuit for every breaker
2. install a addon box (usually 4 circuits)
3. install a sub panel
4. install a new panel with more spaces.
i cant tell u the best option since i dont know how many circuits u r talking abought.i listed your choices in order forom cheapest to higest
