If this is a re-siding job, I would have left that little piece of the wall undone until I had to detach/reattach the Service drop.
That's how I did my re-roof a few years ago. I loosened the attachment bolts, slid out the old shingles, slid the new shingles under the mounting plate and tightened everything back up again.
The way that this job is done is just begging for s strong wind to come by and rip everything down.

OK, it's not a re-siding, but an 'addition' to a single family residence.

Beside a good gust of wind ruining this quality carpentry work, the POCO drop was low enough to get hit by a truck.

Needless to say, they should be surprised to find the POCO drop cut at the pole and laying amongst the debris on the site!

Sorry, I looked at the remnants of the tarpaper on part of the wall and jumped to the wrong conclusion.

In any event, I agree 100% with the disco order.

No need for the 'sorry'. I had another one today....worse than this one. Disco order called in & troubleshooter is in route!

Some guys are going crazy; must be the sunshine?

I blame it on the attitude that "I don't understand what you do...so it must be easy".

Maybe if a DIY program showed someone getting knocked on their butt instead of showing a harmless (but scary) spark when some dummy is playing around with electricity people would take this just a tad more seriously.

I managed to rotate your picture. When you click on full size though it stretches the width to whatever the sideways image was.

I'll look into that a bit later to see if I can fix.

I believe this is addressed in the new ubb version yet to be released.
The problem comes from portable devices that take pictures such as phones and ipads.
They don't care if you hold it upside down or sideways when you take the picture because when you view it in the device you used, the screen rotates it to whatever position you are holding the device.
The problem arises when you upload it to someplace else.
Such as here or on a computer.
Then it appears as how it was taken sideways or upside down
On a pc often times you have a tool to rotate it.
But the current version of this software displays it as it was taken.

Btw,
The picture cropped off the upper right area but even if they had a real point of attachment.And the elevation was proper.
It appears there is a window inches above the service drop.
