These connections were behind the flush mounted dryer receptacle. They fed 2 240 volt AC receptacles run on the surface in NM-B cables. This is 12-2 NM-B.

This is the receptacle end of the AC outlet fed from the dryer circuit.

This was fed by a 20 amp 12-3 NM-B. The splice was buried without a box behind the sheetrock. It fed 2 duplex receptacles wired with 14-2, one on each circuit.

I think this installer learned his trade here in WV. [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

That translucent receptacle box in the middle picture is kinda cute, what did it start out life as?

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

I like the last picture's grounding conductor termination technique, obviously some engineering went into it's design due to the flexibility needed of a flying splice.

This guy could not even figure out his color codes. The 3 wire fed 2 duplex receptacles. Yes he had 2 whites on the device, one was hot.

One would almost have to be a pro in order to know what mistakes to make on purpose at this magnitude! (did that make sense?)

Wow!

Different receptacles, different wire connectors, and different color codes, but otherwise it's very similar to a lot of the mess I get to sort out here.

That splice on the ground wires looks all too familiar.

Maybe this is caused by drinking your beer warm? LOL
