    Reminds me of a home I did with every possible child proofing you can buy, gates, outlet covers, cabinet locks, etc. I get into the baby's nursery and right beside the crib is a receptacle with no cover and one set of the wires stripped back at least 3 inches. The wife of the Selling Couple just completely freaked out.

    I ashamed to admit it but I done something like that 25+ years ago.

    Me and my brother was working on a deck that I was putting around an above ground pool at my first house.

    All the power tools we were using kept tripping the GFCI located in the garage we were hooking up to. So we made a receptacle box, run some NM cable, stripped off the insulation and jumped it right off the lugs at the service feeder wires like idiots.

    Kids playing all over the garage too. Its a wonder they even made it to adulthood with parents as such. Me Bad.

    I look back and wonder what the he77 were we thinking. Now I realize, we were not thinking at all. Get it done, as Tim says.

    Alright, I've confessed now. Feel much better. Had that on my conscious for a long time.
