Older homes—before the day of engineered trusses—-often had attic spaces that were big enough to stand up in. Some were big enough that people would semi-finish the spaces into Rec-rooms or make use of them in other ways. In many cases the entire attic space gets finished off into actual living space—-bathrooms and everything.
I think one of the most unusual electrical splices I have found was in such a “semi-finished” attic. The floor had been carpeted into a play area for the kids. The metal extension ring next to the splice was on top of the splice but I moved it out of the way to take this picture.
Did someone think I would not notice?
Surely no one would ever think it was the proper way to do it.
