    That's exactly what we have, trusses on top of what appears to be pilasters (for lack of a better description).

    That's an interesting point and one that my bldg. dept. didn't tell me about. I'll ask and get back and post what I find. Usually with a gas system the Ansul shuts down the gas with a gas solenoid....

    I Agree. Haven't seen one yet but I'm told they're on the market. I think they wrote this section of the Code in anticipation of them being produced.

    Will the sheath of the armored cable be an effective ground path with a fuse box being the start of the grounding system? Don't forget the K&T leaves the fuse box using insulated bushings. Just...

    I would leave it as is and explain to the EI. Worst he can do is make you drive another one and I would do that on a SEVERE angle.

    I would like to add, as long as you're asking this question, that you cannot "cascade" the neutral (I.e. Wire into the load side of the GFCI and then back out). You have to splice 2 white wires to...
