These are pictures of a granny unit that our neighbor is building. The owner didn't want to pay our outrageous rates so the carpenters son decided that he would give it a try, after all how hard can it be? Below are some pictures of his handy work. They are going for close in inspection tomorrow. This is his final product!! Just wait until the owner sees my price to tear it all out and start over when it fails inspection. In the guys defense he did buy one of those "Wiring 1,2,3" books at the big box store.
ah heck it'll proably pass.the inspector is proably related to the guy! but really what a mess.i hate having to straighten someone elses mess out. maybe we can hire doofy,he'll get it right!sounds like a good episode for the twilight zone!

Good God!, This might explain why we have an apprenticeship system in the Electrical trade. Why the tyraps on the wires?, I'd hate to fault-find or replace any wires in this place after it had been lined. Going by pic #2 there wasn't a lot of planning went into this job either. I give it a -2 out of 10.

The tyraps are there to make this an ultra-neat wiring job, and to provide radiant wall heating. You've got to love the nail protectors on the stud. I'll bet there aren't any on the side where the holes are, under the shear panel.
Has Granny taken out a large life insurance policy lately?

What I'll never understand is how someone can do work like this and not even suspect they're going about it wrong.
For example, picture four where the connector plate is hanging off the exhaust fan? "This piece was attached before I started, but now that I'm done it will float uselessly in space." How does that not ring bells?
