Found more in the same home as above.

Talk about bundling




What a shame. For the money thats going into this



you can at least have good electrical.

A lot of wires in some questionable size holes



Alot of network wiring. I did not think they were running servers at this house?

The service wires don't look so good.

Yeah forget the staples, in fact, lets forget the darn jacket. I mean, its only a little 75c sheath, nothing more. Have you seen how cheap them single wires are, just buy one big roll of 1000ft black wire your set:laughing:

I was in a cave and they wired the wet cave with extension cords and single rolls of wire, I did not want to touch any railing on the steps:eek:


If you are reading this, good for you!

But why? It's just electrical. Go cheap, that's what I say. How do you say "I don't need no stinking staple", in Spanish?
Yo no necesito ningun fu***ing staple. But why the assumption someone spanish did this job? Did I miss that?

It's just that where I'm from, if it's new residential, it is almost a certainty that someone from Central America did the job, and many look similar, though not usually as bad, as the pics above.

Just busting your chops. I always say you get what you pay for. I could never figure out why people decide to do some parts of a job right and do not care about the other parts. The way I see it, if EVERYTHING is not done right then EVERYTHING is wrong. I would of probably thought that was a great job before learning what I have learned here I must admit.

Panels are ugly.

Staples are over rated.

I don't see an issue with "bundling". This is just a crapload of circuits. It's not like they will be all pulling 20 amps all the time.

I would sure as hell put some nail plates on top/bottom plates, even if it wasn't required.

Yeah, bundling in a resi install is not a big deal.

If the wiring was exposed they should use more staples.

Here is the flip side. An outstanding job, done in a 2 million+ single family residence.
