I'd be more inclined to believe that he called a guy from craigslist, and thought he was too expensive, so he Youtube'd it, or read some DIY sites on how to do what he thought he wanted. He screwed it up, called you to get it fixed.

He'll then see what you did to fix the problems, and try it again.


Home owners suck.

Yeah but to take off 12 of them just to check a wire nut for being tight would be a PIA down the road.

I would just like to remind all of you... These fools that do the type of work like posted... They are building me a vacation home.....

Picking up the pieces and fixing all that, there is some good money in it.

But while you're building yours they are possibly burning down someone else's.
