There was an open permit for a sun-room addition for a house being sold, the rough was performed by a previous home-owner. He got the rough signed off, installed plugs and switches, but never got the finish back in 2001. I get the new permit and run into the inspector later that morning at the supply house. I ask him if he wants everything brought up to today's standards ( arc-fault, tr receptacles, etc). He says: "If you feel like it, I'm not going to bust balls on that job, just want to get the permit/paperwork finalized" So I change the plugs to TR, install arc-fault, and he fails me because the 3-gang switch plate is sticking off the wall. I've heard of the 1/8" max gap allowed between wallboard and box, is there a max allowable distance a plate can sit off the wall?
