I was called to this persons house she was complaining that the items another electrician had installed the week before were not working. She stated that she thought the other electrician didn’t know what he was doing. The first photo is blurry but you can see an exsisting 4 sq box with 3 exsisting 14/2 BX cables, 1 exsisting ¾ flex with 2 #14’s and five added 14/2 romex cables. No plate of course.
The second photo is where this electrician fed a new bathroom receptacle. No plate here either. Note the ground wire on the cover screw.
The third photo is obviously something that’s been there a long time. That’s the main disconnect for the service being fed by gas pipe.
