Flipper filled a recessed light with drywall mud!

Back in 2013, I found out that my kitchen had been remodeled, and I knew that a recessed light had been removed from the soffit.

Side-by-side comparison showing a kitchen with a recessed light and the same kitchen without one.

What I didn’t know is that the fixture is still there inside the soffit! It’s still wired up, and everything!

I dunno, guys. If I wanted to remove a recessed light from a kitchen, I’d just do that. Instead the flipper just filled it in with mud! No electrical inspector would ever approve of this. This is just one more example of predatory remodeling by a real estate flipper.
