Ken,

How did the scenario play out where they finally got you in there? Did they get caught with no permits or something?

That's even poor workmanship for a DIY'er...Well sort of.:laughing:

Permits were obtained for framing building and plumbing. Just an unlicensed somebody did the electrical. So the city shut everything down once they figured out there was no electrical permits.

I pulled the permit first thing this morning. Spent rest of AM scoping it all out. Gonna hit it tomorrow. It will be next week until I can get power turned back on.

Now pay attention hacks, notice how 480 even used white receptacles to match the drywall and cord hanging to keep with the surrounding color.
That receptacle under a desk? Makes my back hurt looking at it.
