Its amazing what can be found inside a wall. Today I found a random wire shoved into the wall that was in no way capped, taped or really even hidden. Since the inspector said the electric service and wiring in the house left something to be desired by todays standards, I was a little concerned…
After pulling the electric cooktop and oven I removed the bottom cabinets. I then stared locating all the electric wires and boxes so I could cap and tape them up.
- 220 for the cooktop – CHECK!
- 220 for the oven – CHECK!
- Regular line for the range hood – CHECK!
- Random wire sticking out of the wall – CHECK! wait… wtf?
jk, It didn’t shock me. I still have no idea what the wire is for. The electrician is coming next week.
