making a junction box
I'm building a home and plan on running 12v through out it, Plugs lights etc everywhere I run 120v wiring. some I will place into service immediately, some for the future. I plan on having 2 or 3 seperate battery banks/solar for different jobs. At the moment in my testing setup I have hooked the wiring directly to the battery posts (with Fuses) I'm thinking that when i go for real I should come from the battery post though a larger fuse into a box that i can hook the Smaller fused wires to going throughout the house. is there a good box for this or should i buy a box, take a 2 heavy copper bars (one for pos the other for neg) drill holes in it and add bolts to hook the wiring to? also I'v heard that some use the reg solid house wire for 12v instead of the multi strand is this acceptable? I use multi strand but find it hard to fine any that is larger then 12 awg /2.
