This summer I tore out a wall and a yucky old stove hood, which left some outlet wiring and the hood wires exposed. I now need to throw up some drywall to keep the kitchen a bit warmer over the winter. This will be a temporary fix until the spring, when I have a contractor coming to do some major remodeling (including a new wall, outlet, and hood wiring).
In the meantime, can I stuff these wires (which are live) behind the drywall? Should I somehow secure them to the studs so they don’t flop around? I have the caps on the ends of each wire, but am worried about fire if I put them behind my temporary wall. Do I turn off the power and wrap them in electrical tape as well?
Thanks in advance for advice.
