building a main and sub panels for 2 remote buildings


I received notification last week that my plans have been approved. Before I buy my permits I called the chief inspector and touched base with him about my plans to make sure everything was in order since he was the one who reviewed and approved them. I submitted 15 pages of specs, drawings, and documents outlining everything I planned to do. He said it is one of the most comprehensive set of plans he's ever seen for a garage, and liked everything he saw.

I then made the statement to clarify to him that I planned on doing the wiring and plumbing which is why the methods of workmanship and details of materials were so comprehensive to prove I knew what I was doing. He said it's ok if its my homestead. Ah, well sir I don't live there, but am planning to build a home there and move into later on. Well, then you cannot do the electrical and plumbing. After a bit of discussion I asked for a meeting with the city manager. She will return next week after Christmas.

Obviously you don't have a homestead if you are in the process of building one, right? Sheesh, the government is always there to help us, aren't they?

This really ruined my day. I have spent weeks preparing my proposal and outlining my method of installation. It is really frustrating.
