A family from another country builds a home in America. They bring all their forgien appliances with them, it's all 240v.(or just pick a voltage you'd like here) TV's , radios, blenders, vacuum cleaners, etc. They would like the entire residence to be wired as it would be in their homeland.
As coincidence would have it, here comes a question from todays' Mailbag:
Dear Sirs, We are emigrating from the UK to South Carolina and have many electrical items we want to take with us - some for sentimental reasons. We use 220/240v here. Will it be possible to use our items? Will we need to install a generator? Advice please.

I hope that you don't mind if I borrow your thread a little here? (I'll fill up the tank for you)
Now, in our 'Real Life' situation here Leonie doesn't say if they'll be going to a new Home being built or an existing Home. So it may not be exactly the same question as yours. I've invited Leonie to participate, so maybe We can fine-tune things here if necessary to meet the situation.
I think there are 2 things to consider here and they should be separated right away for a mimimum of confusion. Since you started discussion on the wiring of the houes, let this be the 'Practical' How-do-you? and Can-you-do-it? I started a separate Thread on the specific effects that different voltages and frequencies might have on Electrical items.
