If you run all your electric in conduit (PVC under the floor and rigid for the first and last 10 feet) and pull in stranded wire you a able to change anything you want. Add more circuits, make one heavier, move the air compressor somewhere else, etc. using romex and stapling it down means you are starting over.

Depending on the size of your garage buying 3 500 ft rolls of #12 stranded white, black, and green will last you a long time.

I may be an electrical inspector, but I don't have to inspect my own work! I wired my shop with leftovers and salvaged materials from other jobs, therefore the mismatched breakers. But hey, everything works! And the ground is bonded to the panel, just can't see it. If I think about it, next time I get up to camp. I'll snap a pic of my panel up there. I did have to get that one inspected by a fellow inspector, so I did it up real nice. Every wire straight as an arrow, and only 90 degree bends no more than 5 times the width of the wire. It was a work of art!

Called the inspection office last Monday, said permit would be ready the end of last week or beginning of this week. Called back today and was told maybe by the end of this week. WTF? Does it normally take 3+ weeks to get a permit from the time the application is submitted?

Up to 30 days sometimes. If they are anything like me, they are swamped with applications right now!

Is there some prepping you have to do to the trench before laying in the conduit?

When I ran mine, it was tight against the side of the house and the barn. Now they have pulled away from the wall about 1" on each side.
It's about a 100' foot run.

On a friends house, he ran a conduit from the street to the house for cable if it ever came in that area. Well 20 years later it finally came but the end of the conduit had pulled back about 20" . probably from all the
back fill over it.

Interesting it moved like that. It's like the ground flowed away from the house. Or settled........

Apex is underwater with all the development at the wal-mart, Hate it but residential is taking a back seat now. If you do decide to use conduit go around some of the jobsites up the road and ask nicely of the non-hispanic folks and you might score some for free. I work in civil engineering inspection and get stuff free all the time, knowing who to ask is the hard part. look for stuff that has weeds growing around it mud stains on it and "sunburned". Then just ask!

I finally have my permit, after waiting for a little over three weeks. Concrete guy said he can start mid May, so I have a couple more weeks before construction begins. Once the concrete is poured, it has to set at least 8-10 days then the building can go up. They say the building will be put up in 1-2 days.

I started collecting some supplies for the electrical side of things. I have wiring, boxes, switches, receptacles, cover plates, connectors, ground rods, 100 amp main breaker square D load center, 6 8' fluorescent T8 lights (4 4' bulbs per light) and a few other things. Been shopping around and looking for water line for my project. I'm debating between the 100psi rated pipe and the 160psi rated pipe. The 160 is obviously more expensive, but may be worth the extra just for a thicker wall. What do ya'll think?

I remember you saying your on a well, so you'll probably never have to worry about your water pressure going over 80 PSI. As long as you backfill around the pipe with fine dirt or gravel, and not large chunks of rock, you'll be safe with the thinner stuff.

Rock dust or stone chips.
