HNY TTers,

I am building a new house to replace the 105 year old farmhouse we now live in. 
The existing cable runs, 3 hardline, 2 control cables and 110VAC to the tower 
will be retained and will pass through the new concrete foundation.

Is it best to provide the entrance grounding panel outside or inside of the 
foundation? I think inside will be more convenient to work on and require a 
smaller opening(s) in the wall but outside directly to the perimeter ground 
sounds like the way to go.

In either case, can someone suggest the most professional way to do this? 
Aesthetics (XYL) are important. The current install comes through the existing 
foundation wall below grade and is invisible outside but is far from a 
grounding system as I would have liked it.

By the way, if anyone is interested, the farmhouse, which was renovated about 5 
1/2 years ago and is in good shape but a little small for our needs is anyone's 
for the taking during March. Located south of Kingston, NY.

73, Les W2LK
