Rough in electrical inspection for kitchen remodel


We pulled home owner's permit for our kitchen remodel, and I started to get very worried about the upcoming electrical inspection. I took some pictures of the outlets and hopefully someone can let me know whether they'll pass the inspection.

This is the wire for the DW

outlet for fridge . We'll just keep it as is.

This is one countertop outlet, GFCI

This is the only dedicated line in the kitchen, also a countertop outlet

I hope the pictures loaded ok. Thanks!

Got me scared with that first picture.
Where's the outlet?
All outlets over the countertop need to be GFI and no more then 4' apart.
Is this all 12-2 wiring?
Do you have two circuts for the kitchen?

Should I use a grounding type attachment plug for it?

I have three circuits coming into the kitchen, but two of them are more or less shared. Yes the outlets over the countertop are GFI and no more than 4' apart. The new wires are 12-2. I am not sure about the old wires.

These are my outlets over the countertop.

Not sure why you used 20 amp GFCI's as you could have used 15's. the BX laying on the window sill probably won't pass inspection. Just my opinion though!

Since the price is pretty much the same, I just took the 20 amp ones. I didn't think it would make any difference.

you do not have to have the outlets or switches in for the ROUGH inspection .... they are or want to look at the wires/grounds ..

I know the ROMEX is grounded, so can I just leave it like this? Here is another picture I took:

One of the best things you can do to prepare is call your electrical subcode official in advance of the inspection and discuss their expectations and how they would like to see things during the inspection. For example they may not want the receptacles installed so they can see the individual conductors and the ground wire. Keep asking questions on the forum as well you will get some excellent advice.

for the mot part they want to see the wires were they belong...

dishwashers and disopals are cord and plug now.. so you need a box mounted to land that wire in....

Inspectors I've dealt with want to see the ground wires spliced together, with no devices in boxes, for a rough-in inspection.

I would say that you should lengthen the conductors beyond the connectors. You want at least 6" of wire to work with. Just move the connector back about 1/4" so that there's a bit of cloth showing beyond the connector.
