2018-04-29 Electrical Problems (Omaha Home Inspection)

Showcasing why permits should be pulled when a home is remodeled

Homeowner installs illegal shower in the utility room leaving only 9″ to squeeze through studs to get to the main electric panel. The main panel is in the back corner so unless your body can fit through 9″, there’s no way to even reach the panel to turn off the power during an emergency! Minimum clearance in front of a panel is 3′ from the top of the panel all the way to the floor. This is the real reason permits should be pulled!!!
