not so simple

All we wanted to do was cut in an outlet in our Pantry to plug in a mini fridge for beverages. Simple right? Access thru the basement, etc. etc. We pulled out miles of water pipes used for electrical chases, so who would've guessed there'd be more left in the walls right where we cut a hole for an electrical outlet...

And it must've been 1944 when they did this - as they used newspaper to pad the pipe then. Maybe it would hammer against the wall? EIther way, they must've gotten to this from the Dining Room side of the wall - the exciting part is that the newspaper was dated my birthday!
