Just bought a project house-does this look legal to you??!!!
I just bought a house for a project, it was partially through a full house remodel project that the former owner must have run out of money or something and gave up and sold the whole thing as-is. Actually, the work that was done looks like it was all done quite well, I've done my share of this stuff and have seen the good, bad and ugly and this is all quite good! (or else I wouldn't have bought the place!) There's one thing I'm wondering about though, in the basement, they ran romex for several new circuits from the panel (there was a new panel installed by a licensed electrician who pulled the proper permits) but I don't know if they used the electrician to run the romex in my pics, because from what I remember, if you run romex in the basement, it can be exposed if its run through the joists, but if its below the joists it has to be inside of conduit. Is that correct? As you can see in the pics, they ran romex along the ceiling, under the joists and its fully exposed. Isn't this supposed to be run inside of conduit if its exposed like this???
