Had to get rid of my renter. He continued to make unauthorized changes and continued to damage the house.

He thought I would like his work in the downstairs. I told him I wanted his work removed. He had sheet rocked over a couple of junction boxes, but this one takes the cake.

The connection was made without a junction box, and was behind his sheet rock. The wires were not twisted and only loosely wire nut'ed.

I am glad I didn't 'go with this one'

I am an Electrician and that is a fire hazard. You did the right thing.

When it comes to electricity, my work falls into two categories. If I know what I'm doing, which isn't often, I do it right. I treat electricity like a loaded gun with the safety off and my finger on the trigger. I'm scared of it. I've seen too many houses burn down due to redneck engineering projects, and I've been zapped too many times to disrespect it. The other category my work falls into? Calling a professional.

When it comes to homes and buildings, I'll almost ALWAYS call a professional. I can install outlets and light fixtures. But trouble shooting and repairs? No thank you. I can do many repairs, but I'm not going to. And I for damn sure am not making any changes to the overall layout of how the power's run.

I'll rewire a trailer (utility trailer) in a heart beat. Just did that last week.

I've been shocked more times than I can count. When I was an apprentive I was on top of a six foot step ladder and I got hit with 277 volts. My muscles locked up so tight I had to rock the ladder back and forth so I would fall off of it ..... 277 is by far the worst voltage for muscle contractions

That would TOTALLY blend in in Oklahoma. In fact I think I have seen worse while in that state.

What I know about electricity is this: Don't put these (holds up two trigger fingers) in the socket at the same time (or any other time) and everything else is the electrical guys problem.

There's a campground near mountain view Arkansas called sylamore creek. They have photo albums in their gift shop with pictures of wild homemade campers. I've seen one like this built on an old beetle.
