Fixing a Bird's Nest

Erik Hord, COO of Modern Home Systems, was happy with his home systems, just not the bird’s nest under the stairs.

Hord bought the house after it was wired by another company. “If the company that wired my house had given a damn about what it looked like, it might have taken him just a few more hours to make it look right.”
