A few comments here:
If I did new construction (I don't) I think I would leave the wires unstripped before the sheetrockers got here. Why would you strip them, they would just get covered in paint overspray from the painters?
:andy: is right, I see no reason to strip them that long for any reason.
I see this is a Slater box, I like those because of the push-in-the-screw holes. Anyone else use them?
Thinkgood, did you replace that wiring? Or at least put in a junction box that's not filled with plaster?
