Im bringing this mixed use building up to code for an underwriters certificate. It was just purchased by a repeat customer. This is all romex hacked in the worst way.

As long as the money's right, its (almost) always worth it.

This messy renovation work isn't for everybody, takes a certain character to be able to put up with these jobs. Its a challenge. But very often its profitable. Good for you doc.

I just finished a MC rewire of that ceiling today. Sorry no pics yet. I found some major deficiencies in the cellar that will need to be addressed. There is no grounding present on the service. I found they were using an old 1920s bx wire to pull amps one way to feed an additional circuit on a switch loop brought into an existing box. An electrical nightmare of incompetence and diy.
