Ran into one of those last week.... labeled half the breakers wrong in the new panel he installed. To add insult he failed to hook the GFCI breakers to the correct kitchen and Restroom circuits. I get so many calls to fix screw-ups. I had to laugh when an ET member posted the other day that he was no longer going to take any trouble shooting jobs. I actually enjoy the challenge.

I used to enjoy a good troubleshooting call that ended up with a 'you aren't gonna believe this' story.

Also love they used a breaker lockout instead of one designed for a switch.

Holy crap Batman! There are so many issues in that pic, even from initial install.

1 screw used for mounting, not even all the way in, meter stop plate on right is torn, no bond bushing and the vice grips weren’t even taped.

1) Type NM floor heating cable........of course, you'd need a bunch of load at the end.......

2) Magnetic field concentrator. This is where they test the tin foil hats after they're made.

Lol.

I have seen this done before...I believe they are planning on installing pendent lighting and they do not have an extract location. At least that is what I was told when I questioned the install.

Rough in for pendant lights. We do this all the time now because the island location is never set in stone.
