Temporary Electric Service Inspection

Day #53

November 10, 2018 – Today’s goal is to complete the work required to get the temporary electric service inspection. This includes installing an exterior panel and a waterproof ground fault outlet.

After visiting two different Lowe’s stores and Dauphin Electric Supply, I finally have all the parts I need. I didn’t get to the cottage until late afternoon so I hoped that it wouldn’t take to long to complete. The days are much shorter after daylight savings time ends.

The exterior panel install went very smoothly. The ground fault outlet put the finishing touches on the job. I was done just before the sun went down. We are ready for the temporary electric service inspection.

I’ll call the inspectctor tomorrow morning to schedule the inspection and I’ll keep my fingers crossed that we will pass the first time and get our inspection sticker.
