Side Projects

1 Comment

When we work on a project around the house, occasionally other projects result.  I should say frequently other projects result.  This house remodel is no exception.

While checking the wiring for the new dryer in our laundry room, my husband discovered this unique wiring job.  The ground wire was just hanging there, under the plate, unattached to anything.

It was a three connection plug with a four wire connection.  They just left that one wire hanging there.  My new dryer requires all four wires, so he was actually happy to see this.

He checks everything before he just connects to it.  He is rewiring all switches and plugs.  He has done this in every home we have ever purchased.

For ten years I have missed this ‘friend’.  I love my swing-a-way can opener.  I am so happy to have the use of it once again.  My last kitchen had no place to hang it. I hope there is a place to hang it when we remodel the kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by.  You can also chat with me on Facebook or follow me on Pinterest.

  1. Ooh, that looks dangerous!!! I’m relieved your husband can fix that. What a job to re-wire all your switches and outlets, but who can trust what’s behind our walls? What a handy can opener! For sure, put a special spot for that in your new kitchen design! Blessings!
