More new construction fun. This builder forgot to install a LVL in the garage to support the second story floor.
After the floor dropped a few inches upstairs they had to tear apart the garage wall and add the proper 2x4 vertical supports for said LVL.
So instead of pulling the electric back, drilling new holes, and fishing the wire back through the studs, they decided to push the wires to the EXTERIOR wall and notch the studs.
Guess what happens when someone decides to mount anything in this area?
Yup, the fasteners will hit the live electric wire, and everything will be finished with drywall.
A house is a system of many small parts. The rules in place allow them to play well together for the most part. When you do stupid stuff like this, the rules change for everything. #buildingcode #newconstruction #homeinspector #homeinspection #homeinspectorlouisvilleky #louisvillerealestate #electrician #electric #safetyfirst
