The building contractor was thrown off the fire restoration job, because they were using charred lumber to scab join studs instead of replacing them. The electrician must know a blind inspector. In the first picture extension cords were used in place of NM. Could be due to the increase in the price of NM lately. They did not use connectors in the boxes or worry about box fill.
The second picture shows electrician left his aluminum ladder.
third picture shows triplex held in the top plate by nail plate (not a nail protection plate, but the plate that joins the truss members with spikes on the wire side, wonder which truss is now missing it.) The triplex is taped with duct tape to resemble SE cable where it emerges from PVC conduit. It also runs the length of the house before entering the service
Can you believe this was a professional? The competetion is tough around here, especially when the job does not require an inspection to have power restored. Many times their bid price will not cover my cost of materials.
