These pics came from a house that is 4yrs old, in a high dollar neighborhood ($600,000.00) in Philly.

Eek! and I am no one to 'eek' at everything.

I take it there are no inspections in this area?

What do we have, about 25' - 30' of service conductors in the house?

I wonder how the cable reception is with the coax wrapped up in the NM?

4-gang with bundles of wires, switches not grounded. No outlet on counter. Romex in plumbers pvc. 25' of unfused cable hanging on plumbers strapping. A mess inside and out of panel. Central vac flopping in the return and the 90 not connected. No staples, meter sockets not level. I don't know what you guy's want, it works don't it. And yes there was a rough and finish inspection.

You'd sort of hope that was the case Bob, I mean, what sort of an Inspector would pass this rubbish??.

I can't see any redeeming features at all about this work, it needs the biggest Red Tag in the land. [Linked Image]

That panel looks to be way overloaded.

Pic eight is a prime example of why, in another thread, I had mentioned I don't care for wirenuts in a panel. [Linked Image]

What an incredible mess!! Someone can make a lot of money (maybe) trying to fix this!!


Stupid should be painful.

Pic 9 is most frightening! Take look at those Engineered Lumber joists. Some gormless fool has drilled through the OSB webs right by the flanges, and even put in some extra holes for future requirements!!!!

I'd get me to a lawyer.

I actually thought of you when I saw that pic.

I thought to myself MX ain't gonna like this. [Linked Image]

Personally I have no problem with a wire nut or two in a panel when there is a reason.

Here we have what appears to be fairly recent work and an attempt to fit as many wire nuts as possible. [Linked Image]
