Yesterday afternoon I was inspecting a home from the 70’s with the electrical service panel / breaker box in a room that could be best described as a laundry closet. You could not walk into the room, but you could open two bi-fold doors to access the equipment. The panel was located in the left wall directly above the washer. I marked the panel as deficient and recommended bringing in a licensed electrician, etc and didn’t remove the front because I thought it was unsafe to lean over the washer to do it.
Was I overreacting? Is this “grandfathered” because the house was built this way? Thanks for the feedback.
