Rough-in questions

I'm about to start an electrical project in my detached garage. Permit has been pulled & posted. Have a couple questions about rough-in inspections. Hopefully these are generic enough to get an answer.

I have an existing 200a panel with a couple breakers from when the garage was built. I'll be filling the panel up.

  1. Should breakers be installed for rough-in?
  2. If yes to 1, should homeruns be wired into the breakers?
  3. Should the recessed lighting cans be fully wired in, or should there just be a section of wire flopping near the can?
Thanks much -- may have more questions a little later.

Breakers should not need to be wired in but you can if you choose. The home runs can be cut into the panel.

The recessed will need to be wired.
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

talk to your inspector to find out was he wants to see.
