Default Re: What is happening

Now that we have been in the new house for five years we have been doing some normal house maintenance. One of the things is replace some flooring in the kitchen that is soft from water coming in the back door, back deck not put on right.

When the guy fixing the floor cut an electrical wire that was too close to the subflooring we lost power in living room. While trying to fix that problem, just splicing the wire back together did not work, we discovered that the whole house is wire wrong. VERY wrong.

While they were checking the outlets in the living room it was discovered that at least one grounding wire is hot. Even I know it's not suppose to be. the panel box is labeled wrong. Wires going direction they shouldn't go in.

We have had some minor problems, the light bulbs over the shower, and bathtub blow out with in a day. A couple of outlets that don't work. We did not realize just how bad it is. The person who was down here knows simple electrical problems. He said it had gone WAY past simple. He is send an election down to look at it and make a list of everything wrong and hopefully fix it. Right now we have electricity every where except the living room. They tried yesterday and today, but couldn't get power into that room.

We have decided that it is a good thing the wire in the floor was cut. If it had not been we would never have known there was a problem until there was a fire. Mom is calling Nation Wide Homes, the ones who built the house, tomorrow, but does not expect to get anywhere with them. The house only had a year warranty.
