Power Coffee

The electrician who wired this beach bungalow on Florida’s Sanibel Island had his or her priorities in order – make a nice cup of coffee first before worrying about silly things like accessing the load center. Chalk it up to an electrician living on “island time” in a beautiful place where folks spend more time collecting seashells, fishing, tanning and watching Gulf Coast sunsets than reading up on National Electrical Code regulations.

And if you want to see more Hall of Shame wiring jobs, EC&M's Illustrated Catastrophes will show you some truly insane electrical installations.
