this has nothing to really do with electrical work. This is one of those 4x 12 gluelams used to support heavy loads. Well i had to cut a switch in somewhere below it, found that there wasn't really much holding it, which was noted by the GC, and the kaos began...

The way i figure it, if it looks funny, and it's not my trade, it's probably so...

more on this,
i had to take off the piece of plywood below in pix #1 to enter a wire, when i did people took note, and cut the V out of the plywood above.

The only thing holding this is just the waferboard above it

From the looks of it, I bet it is only holding floor load and a non bearing wall directly above it. That still doesn't make it right though.
