Thumbs down

I am sure you have had this question asked many times but I have gone thru the threads here and have not seen anything pertaining to my situation.

I recently moved into an old house, and I discovered that there is no electrical outlet in the bathroom. How did these people live without one?

There is a new wall mounted medicine cabinet with 3 lights. Can you tell me how I would go about installing one myself? Would it be an easy job?

Thanks in advance!
Monica

Unless you're experienced at installing a new 20 amp circuit breaker in the main panel, running 12/2 w/ground wiring from it to the bath, setting outlet boxes, and wiring in gfci outlets, this needs to be done by an electrician. Safety first where water and electricity meet. I think that you may need to let a pro handle this job.
