Yay! Passed my electrical inspection today!
:D Sorry folks - needed to let this out. :D

The electrical inspector came today to look at my work and he requested ZERO changes to my handywork!

Admittedly, this was not particularly complicated work, but I'm a happy man nonetheless.

1-80A subpanel running 4-3 wire.
5-New circuits for new bedroom, bathroom, lights, steam generator and whirlpool tub. A few three way circuits, some can lights, low voltage lighting.

The inspector did make some recommendations including using plastic trims on the canned lights since they are lower than 8' to the tub and connecting a #8 solid copper ground wire to the whirlpool motor and existing copper plumbing.

The inspectors in Burien are actually helpful *and* friendly. The inspector even offered to give me a copy of the Washington State electric code on CD because he thought I would enjoy some light reading. ;)

Thanks to everyone for the help on this site.
