I am near my final inspection. I have closed in the wiring and boxes in the basement walls. The ceiling is open, with all my lighting boxes containing fixtures or capped off and cover plates installed. The wiring around the ceilings is open. Does the ceiling need to be closed off?
Do not close any areas that contain wiring you have installed without it being inspected and passed first by the city inspector.
Did he not see this on the first inspection? Or had you not completed any ceiling wiring at that point?
Either way, do not close any area up containing wiring until its been inspected.
I assume you have had the rough-in inspection done already before drywall went up. If you have all electrical boxes closed, then you can call for a final inspection, but normally all drywall is installed prior to requesting a final and you have 12 months to get the final done from the date you booked the rough-in permit.
Did you get the ESA permit yourself or was it taken by a contractor? If there is ANY exposed wiring below 7', if so, it must be protected from damage. Exposed wires can be hazardous if left unprotected, it is very thin and can be easily punctured.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Gary and Robert,
I have had the rough-in inspection. I am I believe ready for the final inspection, I have the exterior walls drywalled as it is to cover ICF. I wasn't sure if I had to cover interior walls with wiring.
