Good comment. My county has no building codes or inspectors. I recently enclosed my carport and turned it into a workshop and I decided to hire an electrician run the new wire from the main box to the breaker box in the shop. I did the shop wiring myself, but didn't feel comfortable running the new wire.
Good points. It is a common misconception that passing inspection means that the job has been done right. This argument is used all too often to justify work being done by inexperienced persons. Even if Inspectors may put extra effort into inspections under these circumstances I think it is unreasonable to assume that they would be able to properly assess every single aspect of every installation.
Could we have an Inspector opinion on this?
