I think this gc pissed somebody off.

Trimming out an 8000 sq ft house today, couldn't get power to one of the attached garages. Took me a while to track this down, but this is what I found.:

That is an awesome word, " sabotage". Sawzalls in walls have always been known to reek havoc. I even once witnessed a carpenter cutting in a thru wall AC cut right thru the mast.

That cut looks to me like the "tarded" carpenters were trying to kerf cut the stud with their skilsaw to take out a bow. Hey fella's, (carpenters) you ever pause to bother to look or do you even give a rats ass about anybody else's work, or possibly the welfare and life safety of the occupants of that house?


I have this nonsense happen to me all the time. It makes me want to go purchase a 350 magnum and start using it........

Another case against romex. If they could afford a 8000sf house, they could have afforded EMT.

The 350 rem mag was a good round in its day, maybe even a little ahead of its time. I think I may have one of those still, I have not reloaded one in years.
