Ok first of all I want to thank you for your well explained sub panel video, it is very clear on all I need to know about instalation. I’m a handyman for myself in my house and also do my own mechanical work for my car.

I live in Queens NY.

My question is:  If I’m going to do this myself, How do I get an inspector to check it? Do I have to get a permit somewhere to be able to do the job, and then call them for an inspection? Or how do I go about it? Also what are the cost involved, as per say permit and inspection? Roughly.

    Thank you very much. You’ll have to go to the town and get a permit. How Queens works is beyond me. Most will let the homeowner do their own electrical but don’t. Meaning you would need an electrical license.

    And again, how much is the question. I’m in upstate NY and here you get a permit for about 50-150 bucks. Once you have a permit you would do all the rough in and get that inspected and then complete the rest of the work for a final inspection.
