When the plumbing inspector showed up, he had a clipboard with a red sticker on top. I looked at him and said 'I hope you brought some green stickers not just red ones'.. He grinned and said yep, got a few green ones too.
That inspection went well. The elecrical inspection still has a few 'speed bumps'. He can't seem to figure it out that I'm living in the old sections of the house, and my buidling permits and his jurisdiction end at the interface of the old and new. But I got all the new approved, so I can keep trudging along, and when I decide to finish work on the walls and doorways between the old and new sections. I'll have to call him back for another 'look-see'. Even though I provided wiring, boxes and locations of future switches and outlets.. since they aren't the actual ones intended for use, he won't 'approve' them..
But what is funny, now that he's gone, I can change just about any box or switch if I want, or add more or different lights etc. And he won't know, since he didn't take notes, or photos. So once he's out the door, it all can change. pretty silly system.
I've already decided to add another light along the stairs, the light fixtures I found today are not bright enough to light up the stairs to my satisfaction, so I'm moving the 'approved' light box, and adding another one... I don't think I'll call him for another inspection
Yes there was and is a great sense of satisfaction to power up the house.. FINALLY .
