While this home was build to the state-of-the-art highest standards 100 years ago, the electrical system needed some help. In particular, there were dozens and dozens of outlets and receptacles that had been installed directly in the wooden baseboard, with no grounding connection to the metallic conduit-based grounding system and no metallic enclosures around the outlets to separate the live "hot" conductors from the wood. This was a very definite no-no. We have been working the past two weeks on re-doing these outlets. We are installing proper grounding conductors to bond them to the system ground, and we are widening the openings in the woodwork (Very carefully) in order to insert the proper metal protection for the receptacles. This home will be much safer now.
