Ok, just not in the habit of calling out inspectors online by name. It is tough in these small towns due to the size of our departments, there is just no availability for them to get back to us at the same time my project has to move forward. Very different from Philadelphia where I moved from. More than anything there is just not as many requirements as NJ.
Thanks, it is a huge renovation and my biggest problems are what falls under the renovation code and what is required under the new code. No where in my house would my panel meet code and I know how tough NJ is hence my panicking.
And I have been through your signatures many times...
Didn't ask for a name just a town. Anyway, New Jerseey uses the UCC (Uniform Construction Code for our amatures). It adopts the 2011 NEC (with ammendents) as the electrical subcode. Note the word "Uniform" in the title. This means that the codes (including the electrical subcode) are supposed to be enforced "uniformly" throughout the state. Of course we all know that is not always the case. But we try. One of the other "subcodes" is the ReHab Subcode which is used for existing buildings. It is intended to make it a little easier to remodel a property. It relaxes some of the code requirements. I am glad you are trying to do it right.
If you need additional help, just post your questions here.
All responses based on the 2011 NEC.
