Renovating properly

I was at a place on the weekend where I saw someone drywall over a window. No board between the window and drywall, no insulation, no plastic just drywall, air and glass.
Going right over this would it not create mold from the temperature changes and moisture. This was done in a kitchen behind two stoves. The contractor has told our president that it is done right. I think Mike Holmes would have a fit. Am I right or wrong.
I think the contractor is doing a band-aid. He also has a heavy duty wire that you can see when you look through the window on the outside. I think he added and outlet. Just more or less stuck it there.

some contractor will cover up anything, as long as the finished product looks decent to the home owner, it's not their problem if something goes wrong down the road.
