Here's a picture of the large pile of electrical accoutrement that were unceremoniously ripped from the ceiling, etc. Oh, and that larger hole in the center of the wall? That is where a junction box with four live wires was hidden behind the drywall. But, in our favor is the fact that whoever put in the outlet below that hole left a note inside the box that the outlet was attached to "for the electrician" which diagrammed where the live wires were hidden! It's like a treasure map! (In fact, if you click on the picture you can see the note which has been tacked onto the wall near the larger hole-- the front side is addressed to the next electrician, the back side which you can't see shows the diagram...)
This is a picture of the doorway sized hole that was behind our fridge. If you were to cut a hole in the drywall that covers the backside of this hole you'd have a doorway to our boiler-room... woo-hoo! Guess that cinder block wall between the kitchen and utility/boiler room isn't load bearing after all!
Here's the remnant of another receptacle that was walled up behind a false wall... if you click on the picture you can see the spiffy wallpaper that used to adorn the kitchen. It looks to be some sort of red/maroon argyle pattern. Any guesses as to what decade that's from??
