Some snazzy pipe bending in those first photos.. Even snazzier strapping! (I wonder if the handicapped signs are for the pipework! ) I can't make out what the blue thing is at the end, with the recept & the clever "In-Use" cover (yeah yeah, I know!)

The 3rd & 4th pics I can see something that obviously shouldn't be where it is.... But what the devil IS it doing! Redundant grounded phase?... not to mention typically your service feeders are larger than the utility's triflex.. What the heck are the white conductors? they don't appear like they could handle much....

the last 2 pics look like someone tried to make triflex around a phone line ... the strain relief is the same as Pac Bell uses out here... Not to mention, taking the lazy way to get power from point "A" to point "B"
in the same building (or at least it looks that way!)

PS... Is the phone line tied to the service riser in the 5th & 6th pics?

In the last three pictures the arial feeder from the house to the garage is too close to the garage roof. I believe the clearance should be 8 feet.

I wonder what Jack Benfield would think about that pipe work?
