With steel prices going through the roof, Bozo Electric is saving where they can (no offense meant Bozo).

Bozo would've at least used a 2G plastic nail-on box! This almost looks like someone trying to make a spider web!

Bad Plumbing doesn't work!

Bad Electrical works until it catches fire!

Maybe the leaks from the bad plumbing will eventually extinguish the fire caused by the bad wiring....

Seriously though, this is probably a universal problem. Change those wirenuts for strip connector blocks and pretend those white wires are red and this could just as easily be in a British attic.

Hi Paul,

I've seen some of the wire terminal you're talking about, one of the Irish guy's had some in his bags left over. I thought they were quite cool. I'd like to see someting like them used here. But are you saying, they are not required to be in a box over there? Tell me that's not so... Anyway, if you could, post some pic's of their proper use, I'd like to see them.
