If I was a mason and there was a piece on NM going through where I needed to build a wall, I'd probably do the same.

i agree, but you'd think the electrician would know to go around rather than cut through. he didn't save that much wire.

Looks like the electrician built the wall also..... There's more mortar on the face of the brick than anything.
