Default Pulled First Permit

last week I pulled my first permit (for final inspection, will be connecting outlets to boxes). (:

Not to bad mouth anyone, but to answer why I pulled the final and not the guy who did the rough-in, leave it at HO is very peeved at that guy and most likely won't be doing anymore business with him (after a 5-6 year business relationship).

I'm just happy for work, even if it is the easy stuff. Looking at what was done, I'm glad I didn't get the whole job. Still a lot for me to learn. (:

Is there already an open permit for the job? Did the original installer pull a permit? If not, you may be on the hook for any mistakes made before you got there.
I would be careful. You do not want to fixing screw ups on your dime.

If you were ten millionth applicant a curtain might have dropped, music might have played and you would have won a free Corvette.

He did, that one passed (rough-in). HO is already dealing with old guy adding cost (mounted meter socket nearly 7 feet up, said conduit coming out of the top would look ugly). Having to wrap deck around to get height requirement (moving meter would leave holes in siding).

Incorrectly mounting the meter socket because of aesthetic reasons, for one.

Obtaining permits, playing games with the inspectors, and gathering materials, is something you really have no clue about until you're the boss. I thought I knew it all and my boss was just stupid. I was wrong.

Good luck on this new endeavor.

Well, the HO is also willing to have me take over the electrical on his rentals, so I'm definitely starting out good (:

Something else I don't know about as a licensed electrician, go figure (not a resi job as far as I could tell, but easily could be).
