This could be a fun thread. What’s wrong with this picture from the perspectives of Chris Broome.
Some asshole didn't let the paint fully cure before putting the plate on, and when someone took it off it peeled the paint.
Well, the screw slots aren't all vertical, like they should be. Any man should know that, Broom be damned.
And there is a booger in the paint in the upper right just above the switch plate...
Oh, and when they're horizontal...
And ditch that chintzy-ass light almond shit and get yourself some white devices.
They're all white, except the last one in the island panel.
And you should hire an electrician to roll those switches out so they sit nicely in the cover.
Then may I suggest...
How boat that?
Fuck that noise. 1950's steel boxes don't give you much latitude in getting devices to sit square and flush.
No but the cheap ass Chinese steel mounting tabs on the outlet move easy enough.
When you've got 1/8" on either side of the device and boxes nailed up in a manner other than "straight" and "plumb" and "flush", ehh, nope.
Remember a 5-gang switch box I had to device on a job once. Stud twisted and warped, and the drywallers didn't try to take the bow out of it before nailing the rock up, the box was an inch out of level across the length of it. I've got a picture of it somewhere, it was hilarious when the builder tried blaming it on us.
Blue canary in the outlet by the lightswitch...
No shit. A 15A and 20A switch in the same box!
And damn you, I've been ear bugged!
