I'm very confident now, that I have all the proper info to proceed. So, we'll get the needed permit and hook things up, then call in the inspector. I think all will be fine.
I still doubt you are legally allowed to do commercial work... but what do I know? Hell, around here, you can only work on your OWN personal property, (which does not include commercial) and that is it!

You're right, I am not legal to work on it, that's why I'm not going to be the one who actually does the work. All I'm doing is getting everything lined out for the guy, including the exact materials and the how to's when it comes to codes. He and his son are going to do the work. I'll keep an eye on the progress and correct them if they do anything wrong (Point my Finger). I won't be touching any of it!
I think that's all acceptable...The county where I live do allow the owner to work on their own commercial property. We know this because the fruit farmer had to install a 400 Amp meter base for his commercial operation, the state/county knows it's for commercial, nothing was said about him doing it himself!
