Joe, You are correct about my feelings about Sears. I once got into a heated argument with one of their “head installers” about the poor installation on another home. A licensed electrician came out and installed the proper outlet and then the homeowner billed Sears. Sears sent them a check after the electrician wrote a letter stating that it was an unsafe installation and they would have been held liable for any damages.
On the house that we are referring to, the attic hatch is right there, the sub panel is right in the garage at the rear wall, there were plenty of spaces for a new breaker and a "pop-in type electric box is fairly inexpensive. The whole job cost about $125.00 for an electrician to do it. On the picture of my garage door opener that is wired to the light fixture, I will fix that one day! I actually have the parts to do it, just a little lazy!
