We purchased the house about 2 years ago. Prior to that there were a few major projects. Prior to the purchase, we spent some time with the county and found signed off permits for the work that was done, which included the electrical. Our remodel plans were extensive and required us to get into every wall. Based on some other "findings" I decided to re-wire the house, so everything came out in the demo phase. I cannot believe the stuff we found. The box above was just one that was easy to save.

Welcome to the world of old houses. I found open splices (some just electrical tape) inside of walls where I live.

My buddy found in his bathroom a receptacle that was run with extention cord - and not even the orange stuff... the brown lamp extention cord!
