So the new inspector came out today to discuss the occupancy requirements.  Turns out what I need is a temporary occupancy certificate to allow me to move in before everything is finished on all levels.  I still need to have the three trade permits completed but not all the interior doors need to be done nor the floor.  That makes things reasonable to be able to get in in time.


Also had a question about handrails.  Code requires them to be continuous, but there is an exception that allows them to end at a newel post on a corner.  Inspector didn’t know that when I queried him aboit it, so after showing him the code exception, he agreed to it.  That will make far easier to run the railings by eliminating trying to make the turn.  So other than running a few sticks short of 1” tubing, I should be able to finish the railings and handrails this week.  Then work on hanging chandeliers in three floors of the stairwell so the electrical final can be had.  Plumbing will wait until the final connections are made to the water heaters.  Mechanical will be ready after the remainder of the register vents arrive.  By the end of the month we should be ready!!
 Meanwhile the finger is healing well, but will take over a month more to get close to fully healed.  Fortunately, it doesn’t give me much problem with work.  Thank goodness!

What were the main requirements the inspector told you? We were told a Fully completed kitchen with counters, one fully completed bathroom, AC/hvac, electrical, plumbing..... anything else?

We should ask about the temporary COO bc we won't have interior doors in or 2 showers done.

Amanda,
To be honest I didn’t inquire much about what was required for the temporary CO other than”I still need electrical, plumbing and mechanical finals?” And the answer was yes.  So here it’s not a whole lot different than a full CO, but interior doors, flooring trim etc don’t have to be in.  It’s been my experience that each jurisdiction has their own take on the process and requirements. It looks like you’re pretty close to a full CO based on your local requirements.  They may not require interior doors, floors etc in Mesa. I’d try to confirm with the inspector.  Good luck! I understand the urgency! ;-)
