Thanks, I apologize for asking a question that I should know but that’s the sort of thing that sometimes happens when you reach the age of 70. :sad:
In fact, that’s the main reason I retired five years ago.
I didn’t find reference in my NEC 2005 NFPA code book but I’m sure I scanned right over it.
I intended to post more but the wife was over my shoulder, after me to get off the computer and do something so I kinda typed in haste.
It’s an all metal pre fab steel stand alone structure that came as a BIG giant erector set on two flat bed semi trailers, Butler building or something like that I believe.
First of all the first crew had never assembled one before and didn’t put in the big bolts that bolt it down to the footings, then had to jack hammer the concrete and epoxy them in later.
The footings were poured, then the concrete floor before someone noticed the bolts were left over.
That makes me wonder if they were smart enough to use rebar before they got fired off the job but I wouldn’t really be surprised if they didn’t and I’m sure they didn’t do anything at all pertaining to any electrical. (I didn’t see any rebar or scraps of any laying around)
The water service line and the gas service lines are both plastic and I’m sure there are no grounds other than the one ground rod that the “electrician” drove down.
There are going to be four metal storage containers (like a tractor trailer without wheels) placed out back within 8" of the structure or closer and I don’t think they will have any electrical but who knows, maybe lights some time in the future.
The service panel is mounted on a piece of 3/4" plywood so there is no connection between panel and structure.
Thanks for the picture and the information.
