Typically the sheathing is removed, joints made up as needed, especially the grounds, jumpers for feeds to switches, etc. Our inspectors want to see the grounds made up and necessary metal bonded. Basically, have it set to the point that you could install the final devices now if you wanted too.

If your wiring is installed where it looks nice and clean…properly supported and stapled, etc., most of the time an inspector isn’t going to ‘trace’ the wiring runs. He might ask you a few questions about it, but if it looks pretty, you’ve done one of the most important task…made a good first impression.

FWIW…everybody does it different, but what I do for the 2 GFI receptacle circuits is 1) write ‘GFI 1’ or ‘GFI 2’ inside the box they’re going in & 2) strip the black and white of the line side that’s going to hook to the GFI’s (as if I was going to actually hook it up). Later when you go to actually install the recepts you’ll know line from load. You can label the wires if you want to, but it’s not required too.
