As for inspectors, we have mutual agreements. The day my 1/2" small temporary drain hurts someone is the same day I'll feel bad.
since your choosing this route- may I suggest bushing the shower strainer or tailpiece to 11/2" and using a 11/2" trap.
The best thing to do is cut in a 2" wye for a new shower branch and pipe it completly in 2"
But if you choose to reduce your pipe size, try to do it in the verticle. Soap and hair, etc. will have less chance of clogging your line.

@ DM, I want to ask a couple questions for clarity-
why do you have a 90 on your tub trap?
why the 2 90's at the lavs, why not one riser with a fixture cross simular to your toilets? And how are those 2 90's connected to the horizontal line?

The 90 on the tub was a booboo, .....kinda dumb of me, since the drain goes straight down through the floor, huh? lol
Nothing is glued, I'm just getting the feel of what pieces go where.
The 2 90s are on an incorrect tee as well, not sure WHAT this thing is....2"X2"smoothX2"threaded???
