Our granddaughter owned a condo that belonged to her father-in-law.
The hour my hubby walked in, she told her there was no way she was going to allow her to take our great-grandsons into the house, whoever had hung the ceiling lights had them plugged into electrical cords that were section of extension cords; Duct tape held together everything together, and the wood stove in the living had duct tape wrapped around the pipe to keep it together, then she told her the first thing she was going to get was an electrician, however she needed an electrician before moving in! My hubby was an electrician by trade, although she had been retired for so long that she wasn’t sure she knew all the electrical codes and she wanted our grandsons to be safe.
She called a buddy who was still working as an electrician and asked him if she would come to the condo and look at the electrical system. When Pete walked into the house, her mouth dropped open. She said there were more electrical troubles in this condo than there were mouse droppings, and they were all over the counters and floors. She said she could redo the electrical system, but it was on our granddaughter to hire an exterminator and get the woodwork repaired. There were holes everywhere that the rodents had chewed. If it had been up to my hubby and her buddy Pete, they would have burned the condo down and rebuilt it from scratch. I could not believe her father-in-law thought this condo was habitable, especially for her grandchildren.
