Basement Rough-In


I contacted my local inspector about what to do with the main panel and this is what I got "All outlet boxes shall have joints made up , with a minimum of 6 inch pig-tails. No devices to be installed."

In the rough-in for the panel what is usually required? Do I connect the grounds and neutrals inside the panel with no circuit breaker and if so what happens to the hot wire? Where should I put it in the panel so it does not interfere with all the live wires?

Basement Rough-In


When using an exsisting panel, I instll the grouonds and the neutrals.
Install the breakers, and put wire nuts on the hots until I finish.
