You should see some of the stuff we do as professionals. I some times wonder if people are just that dumb, or have a death wish. Last year I bid on a 2100sq-ft addition onto an 1800sq-ft house built in the 50s some one had been there before and had installed a 200amp meter-main without permitting. they then put in a lot of recess can lights,A/C, 2 ovens and one stove top. Because of the size of the addition I had to upgrade the service to 320amps when we took down the old service there was evidence of charing around the splices, since the wire from the electric company was sized for the original 50 amp service not 200.
