Outlets out

There are six outlets in the series, while they run along the exterior wall, these are all indoor. The pic was taken in the guest bedroom. We don't live in a brick house, we live in a BRICK house.
This was built by a brick mason for himself. With the exception of the laundry room, every room in the house, including both bathrooms have at least one real brick wall.

The outdoor outlets are all covered.

The electrician will be calling back this afternoon. I will be at work, but DH will be here. I have a list of questions for him including GFCIs as there are none even in the bathrooms.

FWIW there is some rust in the boxes, but no current moisture.

Outlets out

Well, everything is working now. He came out, checked out all of the outlets, then stuck his head in the attic and found a junction box with a loose neutral.
Thanks everyone, again!
