The local large remodeling company has their carpenter/handyman do the electrical and plumbing work rather than subcontracting to a licensed professional. I removed this wiring immediately after shooting the pictures. I've heard around town that his plumbing work is the same quality.

He thinks he's a qualified electrician. What do you think?

This guy's a legend!


There are 10 types of people. Those who know binary, and those who don't.

Obviously, you guys don't appreciate the concept of "Free Air" Heck, we could put 50 amps on that outlet just cause we didn't encumber it with that heat capturing box.

Seriously though, if someone can't stop him by stealing his tools, he should have his fingers legally removed.

The way that I look at it is that he will have the opportunity to start all over again if he leaves that light on long enough.

It's not necessary to call an electrician, black to black, white to white, what's so had about that? Or to quote a GC from South Philly " Why I needa' lectrica',to mucha' money, I do a myselfa'.
