Too many things to even mention. I'd separate yourself from any electrical work on that dump unless they are willing to start over. I'm sure the plumbing isn't much better.

Or the structure or the HVAC or any number of health and safety and then there's the cosmetics...it never stops at one item/trade

It's in the 2nd floor of an old brick building with plaster. Not the easiest place to fish conduit, but I'll be pulling all new from the panel. Only saving some outlet runs that are installed properly or can be repaired. The feeds to each circuit are cloth covered wire in that tar/asphalt cable sheathing. Place is a mess.

Sheesh look at the holes you put in those nice plaster walls!

I swear, between electricians and plumbers, your guys just like to rip stuff apart
heh, ever watch HGTV? They rip crap apart! Sometimes with retrofits you gotta break an egg to make an omelet! Look at the place, it's either gonna burn down or have some repairable holes to make the place safe again...your choice I suppose! (disclaimer: you're exactly right, some people do go WAY overboard! :mad: )

Obviously the work of a hack.

All handymen aren't hacks. Some electricians are.
Yes, unfortunately there are hacks in every trade! :blink:

I've seen a lot of guys calling themselves handymen, when they are far from handy. :laughing:

Pick up a Ryobi combo set and a truck, and they're off... :laughing:
