    You are so right. Many houses have that transformer buried somewhere in the wall where it will never be accessable without breaking into the wall. Some monkey decided that the transformer would never need to be worked on so they covered it up.

    You think that’s bad? I was doing a bathroom remodel for my inlaws a few years back. The jack wagon that was hired in the 70’s to do the last remodel had 4 outlets and a light tied into the same circuit, no “box”. Just 5 wires wires nutted together inside the wall and sitting inside the Sheetrock “box” they had built over top of the shower/tub. 2 different wires coming into that mess were hot and from 2 different breakers.
    How nobody died I’ll never know.
