comment Is it OK to have more than one neutral wire in the same connection on the neutral bus bar on a main panel?
There should be instructions printed on the box. Did you find any specs on the inside of the door?

Is the electrical box metal? Is there a bare copper or green wire screwed to the back of the box?

comment What should be done with dirt from digging out sewer drain pipe?
I would be worried that the lime would throw the pH of the soil way off and prevent anything from growing in that area.

comment What should be done with dirt from digging out sewer drain pipe?
I'm not an expert. But if it's all organic, I would just use it as is. It's not like your yard is an EPA supersite or anything. Septic systems drain waste into the yard through a drain field as part of their regular operation, and when they backup, no one sends in a hazmat team. Inside a couple months, microorganisms will eat all the bad stuff.

comment How do I remove a brick patio embedded in concrete?
Strictly speaking, you don't need a jackhammer, A sledge hammer, a four-pound hammer and a large brick chisel should do fine if you have the time.

comment How to rewire house electrical?
Don't think I can fully answer your question. But... My advice: since this is your home and you don't have to pay for labor, learn how to bend conduit. Run conduit as much as framing allows (a must in unfinished basement). I would not recommend putting any kind of cable under the baseboards.

With respect, I don't think "Call an electrician" is a sufficient answer for a DIY forum.
