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 [Linked Image]
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.
