Somebody Forgot to Call the Building Inspector

Digital ImageI’ll betcha THIS went in AFTER the electrical inspector signed off on the job. There is supposed to be an electrical box in the wall, with the wire snaked through it and the connections protected inside it. In addition, the light fixture (which I removed so the wallpaper can go behind it) was not grounded to the ground wire in the wall.

It’s amazing how many times I come across wiring like this. With a Home Handyman, you can understand. But this house was remodeled using professional contractors, so it’s hard to understand how something like this can be done, or how the electrical inspector can miss it.
