I posted some photos to abpw.
I spent all day in a hotel conference room today... The hotel was completely
gutted and redone over the past year or so and only recently reopened under
a different brand. I got to looking at the alignment of the various outlets,
jacks and switches on one section of wall. I don't think any two of them
were installed at the same distance from the floor or ceiling or a level
line. What was also amusing is the location of the peep hole on the door...
note that the push bar is at the usual 36" from the floor. To see through
the peep hole you’d have to be at least 7 feet tall! How could anybody sign
off on such lousy work???
the signer obviously thought the price was right
a master tile setter i know gave up
every job he used to get was underbid by non-english speakers
he went back to visit the jobs once completed and was not surprised to
see no craftsmanship and ridiculous tile layouts
this also was in hotel environments so it was easy to visit the finished
state of the union indeed
I've seen that...close inspection showed each one to be offset
from the one before by half the width of the box. Apparently
the guy who installed them couldn't be bothered to put any
S-bends in the conduit, so he just offset the boxes to line
up with straight runs of conduit.
Different scenario - imagine you have 3 parallel runs of
conduit. Normally you'd put 3 boxes at equal heights, and
s-bend each conduit to align with it's box. This guy,
instead, spaced the conduits by 1/2 the box width and
staggered the heights of the boxes to match.
