Main Breaker in a Main Lug panel?


I didn't look that hard, but I don't see anything right. What a total hack. It is even made worse by saying the inspector willl not see some of it. Makes it sounds like they knew it was not right, but what the heck, I am not going to get caught.

Is it really true that the LB is not allowed in the enclosed wall? I had even questioned him about that!

Buzz: There is a permit: I pulled it owner builder, but decided to hire a licensed electrician because everyone got me scared about doing electrical work myself. I've been doing everything else myself: and there have definitely been mistakes, but it is so frustrating when you pay someone who is supposed to know what they are doing and they screw up. I did check his license online, and it appears to be valid.

Thank you everyone for your help.

The LB will need an access panel over it to be compliant.
