I continue demolishing the rest of the basement ceiling in preparation for more electrical work.
Instead of a proper unions, I discover that the flipper ignored building codes again, and fashioned a duct boot out of wads of duct tape!
I also discover this saddle-tap used for the refrigerator ice maker. Saddle-taps are against building code in Minnesota because they are prone to leaks.
I also find more illegal wiring and hidden construction debris above the ceiling.
