That’s what’s under the floor if your standard 1920’s bathroom. That’s why we need to gut it. #knobandtube #wiring #galvanized #waterlines #leaddrainpipe we call the surgical #demolition pros for these jobs.

Its very possible when the house was first built it didnt have electricity. We had to update some of it to hold homeowners insurance so phase 1 of electric upgrades happened pretty quickly also. It took the electricians 5 days to get all the wires in the basement figured out. Since we needed to have our service entry wires redone, we decided to go up to a 200 amp service for future expandability. #oldhome #centuryhome #upgrade #electrician #200amp #watersmeethouse #homerenovation #fuses #knobandtube #doubletap #thatwasntcheap

Knob and tube wiring was an early type of electrical wiring. It was commonly used from the 1880s to the early 1940s. In knob and tube wiring, wires were held to the wooden structure by ceramic knobs, and were protected by ceramic tubes when they went through a piece of wood. Wires were held to the knobs by another piece of non-conducting wire. #knobandtube #electrical #CRUSHIT👊🏼

Nice to see knob-and-tube electrical wiring history in this 100 year old house. #oldhouse #renovation #knobandtube #lifeisbeautiful

Were estimating that at some point in the 30s or 40s someone turned two absolutely huge main floor rooms into three huge main floor rooms, and this crazy tube from the old knob and tube was hidden away in an old beam behind some crazy remodeling choices. Ive only come across the regular sized tubes before (the one on the right) has anbody ever seen one of these monster tubes? . . . . #knobandtube #tube #housefinds #1930s #1940s #homeremodel #unearthing #monstertube #icantwaittorefinishtheseoakfloors #craftsmanhome #craftsman #nightmaremansion #nightmaremansions

Misty morning with some surprisingly nice lighting and fantastic conversation (mostly about #knobandtube) at #coffeeoutside. . . . . #coffeeoutsideSEA

Have you ever worked with someone that always says “that’s the way we’ve always done it” ??? I do all the time🙄 and back in the 1950’s when this basement was wired, I’m positive there was a crotchety ol’ bastard that said and did the same crap. No electricians were actively wireing with knob and tube for at least 20 years when this mess was done🤦🏻‍♂️. There’s a moron for every generation I guess #electricianlife #knobandtube should’ve been a #librarian

Here is one of the many issues with having live Knob & Tube wiring in your home. If you look closely you can see where there is a connection being made between the 2 wires. There is no box, theres is no sheathing. This means there is no protection. The worst case scenarios show this is how fires start in homes or business. This fire would likely start in the walls, attic or the basement. Knob & Tube is to be removed and replaced with new code compliant wiring. Call us to set up a consultation to remediate this old wiring. 215-817-5030 #tripointelectric #tpe #knobandtube #wayne,PA #electric #electrical #itsgottago #oldhomewiring #generalcontractor #electrician #mainline #interiordesign #architecture

Woohoo check out that scary old knob and tube wiring! 🤡 We decided to have the house rewired before moving in for a few reasons- mainly not having to deal with the mess with our stuff in the house and also because the old wiring was terrifying... as you can see in the first pic 🤭 please enjoy a series of photos of holes in our house. #knobandtube #homerenovation #fixerupper #oldhouse #angieslist

This old house. #lookingup

Project #1: replace knob and tube wiring. So far not nearly as messy as I was expecting! 🙌🏻🤞🏼 . . . . . . #framingham #homeowners #homerenovation #homeremodel #colonial #civilwarera #mansard #knobandtube #electric #thisoldhouse #notDIY #wiredelectrical #phaseone

Before and after how we do it and the last pic was the homeowners buddy that knew about electrical. We had to fix pretty much everything they touched.

Walls have been a popular news subject since the 2016 election, so I’m thinking I may throw caution to the wind and exhibit my photos of the insides of the walls of our house. With plaster and knob-and-tube remnants, poking around in the walls is difficult, and I use these photos to figure out the hidden logistics of wiring. . . . #photowork #photography #thewall #buildthewall #maga #wiring #electrician #romex #knobandtube #homerepair #newwork #avantgarde #cuttingedge #insulation

New rewire brought to you by KamsPower! This home is an old knob and tube system used in the 1880s to 1930s, we will be abandoning this type of wiring and installing a new energy efficient system with mostly electric appliances and a new 200 amp panel solar ready!!! #knobandtube #green #solarready #rewire #ledlighting #fixtures #losangeles #KamsPower #lovewhatyoudo #craftsman #electricalcontractor #electrician

What old house is complete without knob & tube wiring and a slab basement?? 🤣🏡🤦🏼‍♀️

Knob and tube needs to find new functions if they want to stay in business. - - #knobandtube #electrical #business #electrician #hanger

Mommas helper! I need to save that door behind her- theres about 10 layers of paint on that old wooden door that need to come off! #fixerupper #goodbones #fliporflop #midwestisbest #midwestliving #puremichigan #grandrapids #househacking #houseflipping #homeiswheretheheartis #knobandtube #originalhardwoodfloors #houserenovation #diyer #grandrapidsrealestate #oldhouseonthomas

Owner was told no knob and tube, first hole made in the basement. This can be a big expense the homeowner did not budget for. Make sure you get a good home inspection and a realtor that knows what to look for.

Its common for clients to confuse knob and tube wiring vs fuses in a house - this is a typical fuse box from the 1930s in a house that did not have knob and tube wiring. It has two types of fuses - the top 2 are pull fuses, while the bottom 4 are screw in fuses. Fuses are considered obsolete and 60amp service to a house is considered very low by modern standards, so this house needs an electircal upgrade! . #homeinspection #homeinspector #njhomeinspector #realestate #njrealestate #forsale #oldhouse #electrical #electric #knobandtube #fuse #fusebox #confused #danger #lifesafety

Not much time for enjoying the garden but on Friday the #shoestringbrewery moved much closer to modernization with the removal of the 104 year old electric system. Now a newly rewired house with a new service panel that has room for expansion. Were 1/6 of the way to our project listed goals. Next a ductless air handling system, steam boiler, & hot water heater. Then on to age related repair and restorations. #knobntube #knobandtube #knt #knobandtubewiring #knobandtuberemoval

I’ll take “Terrifying 1940s Electrical” for $800, Alex. “Proprietors of modern electrical system repair services who see parts from the 1930s still in homes.. say this:” “Alex, what is ‘Fuck me gently with a chainsaw’.” “That’s RIGHT.” #knobandtube #drunkhomeinspector #heatherchandler #greatpategottamotor #eskimo

Two common old-home secrets revealed in a recent remodel. Knob and tube wiring at the kitchen lighting switches. The “knob” is on the right above the dimmer and is used to hold the wiring away from the framing. It’s made of glazed ceramic. The “tube” you can see embedded in the wood above the switch on the left. This protects a wire in places where it needs to go through wood. The danger in knob and tube is the old wiring casing can (and will be) brittle so attempting to relocate or work with the old wiring will likely damage it. You don’t move this stuff, you replace it. The other picture shows a cut through a lathe and plaster wall. The lathe are the thin strips of wood you see on the left side of the stud. It is placed with gaps for the plaster to “key” into and stick to the wall. Plaster walls are thicker than standard sheetrock framing and create “quieter” walls. You can still get plasterers to do new walls but they are more expensive. When remodeling with plaster walls be sure to talk with your contractor about their approach and recommendation for mixing wall types. And make sure to protect other rooms when altering plaster walls. It makes a LOT of dust. #knobandtube #latheandplaster #remodeling #insidewalls

Push button light switch with indicator light to let you know if the light is on/off in the basement. #lightswitch #hardware #northdakota #history #knobandtube #electrical #basement #mansion

Asbestos testing came back negative and negative for lead so yesterday we demolished the kitchen (sorry, JJ). Uncovered a full brick stack which well utilize as an architectural focal point thanks to a friends idea. Found remnants of really pretty wallpaper. Might reach out to Juju Papers on that. Lots of the outdoors in these walls (!) and, yes, they used vinyl flooring to panel the walls and the house is knob and tube. Oh joy! #dream #demoday #1914construction #yestherewereanimalsinvolved #livingthedreamtogether #wehavebrick #antiquewallpaper #wearenotchipandjoanna #vinyflooringforwalls #interestingconstructionchoices #knobandtube

11 circuits for the entire full two story century home. Anyone want to take a bet if I find Knob and Tube active in the house???? I don’t know the answer........:.. yet. #allouthomeinspection #homeinspectorlife #homeinspector #knobandtube

Always pre twist and a little spray foam to make sure the box goes nowhere #knobandtubewpg #knobandtube #knobandtubewiring #electrician #riverheights #wolsley #electricianofinstagram #winnipegrenovations

If you have switches like these there is a good chance you have active knob and tube. Give us a call to check it out #knobandtubewpg #knobandtube #knobandtuberemoval #electrician #electricianofinstagram #winnipegtrades #winnipegrenovations #wolsley #riverheights

Been awhile since someone has replaced this outside light, still got the porcelain merretts. #knobandtubewpg #knobandtube #knobandtubewiring #electricianofinstagram #winnipegrenovations #electrician #wolseley #riverheights

What is this electrical contraption, and why did I have to fix it? Swipe left for more pics, but its a... . . . . hundred year old spring-loaded light switch that comes on when you open the door, and shuts off when you close it. When we first bought our house 8 years ago, it worked - some of the time. Then, it just quit working, and it hasnt been working for years. So, in todays craze of doing stuff around the house, I took this apart (having turned off the breaker first, of course!) and diagnosed the problem as a faulty spring. Two small coils had broken off the spring and it was no longer strong enough to keep the button outward. After removing the loose coils, I then put a zip-tie around the back part of the rod upon which the spring rests. This gave a shortened back-plate for the spring, and full functionality back to the button! It works great now, and I was/am truly amazed at the precise engineering, mechanics, porcelain housing and thought that was put into creating this device, 10 decades ago. This kinda Old House stuff excites me!! #electrical #thisoldhouse #electrician #lighting #lightswitch #broken #fixed #knobandtube #homeinprovement #DIY #technology #engineering #precision #repair #realestate #entreprenuer #ingenuity

A quick Friday rewire of the hall light living room light and porch light. Got the patches back in and ready for the first coat of mud before the homeowner is even home. #knobandtubewpg #knobandtube #electrician #winnipegrenovations #electricianofinstagram #knobandtubewiring #knobandtuberemoval

Its acceptable for knob and tube wiring to have open-air splices, but not for any other type of wiring, such as the NM cable shown here. This is a potential fire hazard that needs to be corrected by an electrician. #firehazard #homeinspections #knobandtube #mnhomeinspector #minnesota

Electrical is not always pretty, or easy. Sometimes it kicks your ass. I know when to call in the big guns. My cousin owns his own electrical business and is the MAN. This home was built before electricity or plumbing so everything was retrofit. I was tasked with swapping the overhead lights with fans only to find that 75% of the house was on 1 circuit and it was knob and tube. We ended up running 6 new circuits. 3 for dedicated bathroom gfci. 2 for dedicated window a/c units, and 1 for the kitchen gfci and disposal. #westchester #handyman #unique #custom #I_do_that #electrician #electrical #makeitnew #electrical #electricalproblems #knobandtube #dirtywork #pullingwire #makeitright #update #goodhelp

Love inspecting historical homes. #bestindianahomeinspector #decidewithcertainty #historichomes #knobandtube #homeinspector

#tinyhomes started today! Runs in the frame nearly complete. Few more to do when that stage comes up. Stay tuned for more big pictures from a tiny place. @borealistinyhomes follow them if you haven’t yet! And then we found functioning knob and tube at a job 🤔. Inspector allowed me to to remove the light drop that was holding the job up and not have to rip the whole ceiling down to trace out and redo the circuit. Removed the hot leg and rubber tape over the exposed portion. #knobandtube #electrician #electricianlife #contractorlife

Installed this floor plug for a customer really like the look of it #winnipegrenovations #winnipegelectrician #knobandtubewpg #knobandtube #electrician #electricianofinstagram

In all seriousness, I should probably be an electrical engineer. (don’t try this at home). #electric #knobandtube #huphup #fixerupper #oldhouse #restore #restoration #staycation

Well fine, let’s go ahead and play the old follow the knob & tube game.. #huphup #oldhouse #electric #knobandtube #restore #restoration #staycation
