I don't think that was done by a sparkie?

The surrounding floor is way to clean for their aftermath!

Either photo shopped, or the builder has sent his labourer to clean up afterwards.

I'm always amazed at how sparkies know how to test and tag a vacuum cleaner. Yet wouldn't have a clue how to switch one on and operate it?

Used to know a couple of woodbutchers that picked up all the sparkies crap and would sit quietly stripping off the insulation while having their lunch break. Apparently the scrap paid for their families xmas party every year. :cup:
Also tried to explain to a young drainer/plumber how to cut his 100mm pipe so that he didn't leave 500mm bits all over the place and to use it all, that went straight through to the keeper  ??? ???

Hi,
   As it is a pictures thread, imagine this on site.
Plasterer nails a scrap of wire to the stud and puts it through the sheet he is fixing at the same height as all the  GPOs.
Cheers

I'm a sparkie and yes, I do clean up after myself........

I have had to nail plenty studs in before to hold brackets, position wall lights, ceiling fans etc.
My only gripe is that when I do it I do a good job and it makes the wood butchers crap look woeful!!!!  ;D

Yep, these days they just stand prefab frames on slabs that have more waves than Bondi and then the whole thing turns to poop.
The air con guys then follow us and cut, move, and push anything in their way. Nah mate, plumber won't need that pipe, joist? nah mate get rid of it, it's in the way, wire? just push it away, sparkie won't care.....

Then indian insulation guys follow them and push everything else that the air con guys missed out their way.

Gyprockers follow after pushing every wire back into the ceiling space or wall, never to be seen again.

We come along and then get reamed for cutting holes.

I now tell the builders, if they don't want holes cut, tell the other trades not to move our wires once we put them in or the client they don't need that light or power point.
Oh and by the way Mr Builder, here's the photos of it installed in the correct position when we left.
Now we move on to the fit off.

After the tilers have done their bit and the painters have splashed paint on everything expect the walls, we merrily put points on and lights up and NO!!! we didn't wire for the 8KW cooktop because the plan said gas and No we didn't run floor heating to the bathrooms because this is the first I've heard of it, and no I didn't prewire for solar as the customer never asked and when I asked you the response was "Nah mate, not on the plan they don't get it"

Yes I can do it now, but how many holes do you want and that original quote at rough in??? Triple it!!!

Oh the joy!  ???

On the upside though, it could be a hell of a lot worse, I could have been a plumber!
 ;D ;D ;D

you must be different to most sparkies and plumbers then, because the majority cut thier timber a touch long to hold it tight in place whilst they nail it in.....sadly though it usually puts a round in the wall somewhere that I then need to plane out or have to pack other spots so it doesn't show in the gyprock later on
