What was the reason to put the pull box on the door trim? Did the customer complain about that?

That's where the old meter was. I would have liked to abandon that point of entry but anywhere else would have been really difficult.

Did I really ask? I forget.

Anyway, that's a really nice disconnect you got there.

Looks like it would be a weather sealing concern to me. Does thee storm door not hit the box when fully opened?

It's artistic, you see how the 90 degree elbow on the top is complemented by the similar matching 90 on the bottom? Kind of like a big "C" Art can't be bothered about door trim.

Why the top 90? There was no need for it.
No strap within 1 foot of the meter socket for the top conduit and none on the bottom one .

Why would you need a strap within 1 foot?

Why the box instead of an LB?

Mostly just to cover up the mess after the old meter hub was removed. Also, the new meter hub is mounted on strut so the JB let me keep my 90 square, if you know what I mean.

Nailed on what grounds? EMT is to be strapped within a meter, not a foot.

Agreed. That extra store-bought 90 he installed could have paid for lunch and maybe even dinner too

I agree that the bottom one should be strapped just for my own reasoning. But if it's shorter than 3' I don't think it's necessary here.
