Default Since I'm posting pics..........

I grabbed some pics from a camera that stays in one of the trucks. Since I'm posting pics, here are some gems.

This was a rats nest in a million dollar home's pool house. No power to sprinkler timer, mounted in pool house. I found a rats nest and a bunch of chewed up wiring, down to the copper, but it wasn't the problem.



There are a couple of dead rats in this mess.



I found the "real" problem outside between two pool light jboxes. Had to replace conduit and pull wire.

Next............

Completely rewired a hoarders house. Neighbors must love him.

This couple is living in that trailer during the renovations. He told me I could use the bathroom in there but not to flush the toilet paper, just put it in a plastic bag.

Uhhhhh........ thanks?

Seriously, the larger of the two sheds pictured was the size of a garden style shed that had been wired for habitability for an elderly couples grandson. Sad situation, I was in disbelief for a few days.

Happyness is living where they do not allow house trailors to mar the scenery. Makes me wonder sometimes how Dog and Beth can stand to live here.

Not to hijack the thread but here is ome pics of a hoarders house I was working in a while back, I literally spent a 1/2 hour clearing a path to breaker panel just so I could troubleshoot, Note the junk is at switch height (about 48" down here )

Problem ended up being a tripped GFI outlet in garage that fed bathroom, and as you guessed it was buried behing 4 or 5 feet of stuff. I reset and took my sharpie and drew a 2 foot by 2 foot arrow on wall to show the the next poor slob who has to deal with it where it is. By the way I left no receipt for bill or a card, I'm hoping they don't somehow find my number in the future

As opposed to a Lowe's bar code?
