insulation or electric first?
You should always install your wiring and plumbing before insulation.
Insulation will be in the way. Not to mention that you will be 'out of sequence' for your inspections.
What I mean is that, you need to have your framing inspection before your insulation can be installed and inspected.
....and, you need to have your electrical inspected and ok'd, in order to have your framing inspection.
The reason for this (framing inpsection coming after electrical Insp.) is to make sure that plumbers and electricians have not drilled thru any structural members in such a way as to compromise their ability to support weight loads. (It has happened)
The framing inspection then comes before the insulation inspection...so that the inspector can actually see the framing (which would be difficult to see and inspect, if there were insulation up)
