Unexpected kitchen remodel : part 4 – electrical and plumbing

IMG_0411.jpg

After the walls of the kitchen were taken down to the studs, here’s the just some of the mess we found!  The entire 1st floor of the house was fed by this knob-and-tube wiring, much of spliced with new wiring that looked like this, none of it up to code.  Thankfully, we were able to eliminate all the knob-and-tube wiring in the house.   There was also a small amount of plumbing to move aside, to open up the new kitchen space. You can see the new plumbing and support beam in the last picture. IMG_0410.jpgIMG_0432.jpg
