So this was a frustrating job for me because it just should not have happened. I was called in to do a simple job – replace the shower switch and then through normal pre-work inspections and conversations with the client we ended up going down rabbit hole of misery. TL;DR A builder had done some work for someone and had their mates son (unqualifed) do the electrics. It was the week before Christmas when the young couple with 3 kids really should have been focusing on festive celebrations and instead I was taking apart their kitchen.
On the upside we did make their home safe and give them added protection incase of other hidden problems.
