Three friends help me demolish parts of my bathroom, laundry room and other areas of the lower level. ($96.27)
In the process, I find illegal plumbing and electrical wiring beneath my kitchen sink and in my laundry room wall.
This wiring splice is missing a junction box.
This metal junction box was concealed behind drywall.
I also discover PVC pipes that have been punctured by drywall screws! Pipes that are framed-in are supposed to be protected by metal stud plates to prevent this.
I demolish the ceiling above a closet which reveals more shoddy workmanship and a heavy duty electrical conduit that has exposed wires protruding from it.
I also discovered that the closet ceiling drywall was screwed directly into the heating duct!
