Looks like crap but the wire is supported, NOT bundled, (for all you deraters) , and the person who did is probably an excellent basket weaver.

That is truly funny, sparky
scott,
I'm not so sure it's supported. I'd say is is either separated, or "guided".
It is a creative idea, though. It reminds me somewhat of finding all branch conductors in a panel bundled every few inches with pieces of #14 twisted around them.
Looks like a job for Stackers.

If one of my staff had done that, they would no longer have a job !!!
All the electrician ? had to do was go to the local supplier and get some cable clips.

silly man, and messy at that.

That looks like zip-cord being used as the "tie wrap"...or what?

No it is not zip cord, it is the entire sheath from the Romex.

I agree with John H. May even be tempted to dock the pay as well for the time wasted. nah but it would be a fast good by.

Reminds me of the wiring I've seen in some houses in my neighborhood where short lengths of cable sheath and a nail were used to strap a bundle of cables to the side of a joist at regular intervals.
