This is a double-whammy. Violates not only NEC but also the building code. My house was never inspected by the building code people, as long as someone pays for a permit they're O.K. If you don't pay for a permit THEN they start to care. They also say they can't help because their jurisdiction ends when the house becomes occupied (even without an occupancy permit). Figure that out. As for the electrical inspection it passed with flying colors. The local inspector must get paid under the table by the builders. I tried to find some help at the state level but they do not monitor residential buildings. The federal people I talked to say it needs taken care of on a local level, so ENFORCEMENT OF NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE IS A JOKE, at least in Ohio. If anyone can prove me wrong by telling me who would do something to enforce it and help my problems I would gladly admit to being wrong.
