Without warning the power went out for all rooms on that breaker box. (we have two separate ones due to remodel) no breakers are tripped. We do not use 220 in that part of the house. No GFI outlets.

My husband has a friend who did "electrical". Im skeptical. The two of them decided to rewire from main breaker box outside to this one. My husband has no experience in this area and full trust on his part is in his friends opinion. I would like to not throw good money after bad, so I am reading everything I can to ensure we have a good diagnoses.

Im looking for suggestions. Ive double checked all the breakers. How would I know if we need to replace the full wiring? (Im not dissing my husband, Im just not confident in his buddy.)
His buddy say we do not have voltage coming to the breaker box in the house. However, I recall my friend vacuuming that room the day we lost the power.

It is not rocket science. Use a meter to trace back to where there is/is not power and you find your problem.

I would hire an electrician who know what they are doing. Its not worth a house fire because it was done wrong.

Power outage from the gastrointestinal tract? No; I doubt it!
