Calling all electricians

I have a house that needs electrical repair. The previous owner did some do-it-yourself wiring that needs fixed. After the house was foreclosed some of his handy work was cut out for safety sake.

The known wires missing are to the dryer, water heater, and range hood as these lines were dropped from the ceiling. I am assuming the line to the stove is missing as well since it comes up from underneath. The outlet boxes are not flush with the wall is several rooms. Some exposed wires have been capped outside of the home (no clue as to what they were for).

Should I address the known issues and piecemeal the work with a wait and see approach or plan on a total rewiring? And what sort of costs am I looking at?

If any electricians show up that are looking for work in the Mound City area PM me.

Get a price for each issue and and completely re-wire that circuit. If jack legs did the work replace before you burn the house down.

I won't do it myself. I don't trust me. I am just looking to budget in the electrical work.

Yeah, it's hard to estimate cost without seeing how difficult it's going to be. If the panel is in an unfinished basement and everything is accessible it won't be too bad. If it's all in areas that are finished, prepare to get bent over.

The outlet boxes not being flush is scary, those things are nailed to the studs and once the drywall is up there's no easy way to fix that.

where are you at? All of it can be fixed pretty easily but it can get expensive. Do you have room to get below the house or above the ceiling? Pm if you want to talk via phone?

Above the ceiling is easy enough but below the floor may be a bit cramped. The breaker box is located in a bedroom that replaced a garage. The meter to the box is directly on the other side of the wall from the box. The attic seems roomy (for an attic). That is where the furnace is located as well. Looks to be 5 years old or so. As far as I tell from peeking through the attic entrance it is still wired.

FYI it is not uncommon for 220v outlets to be face mounted.

We can see the lines and where there cut. They were dropped straight down from the ceiling then mounted to the wall.
