Levco Builders, in Boise, Idaho, meets with clients for a mandatory walk-through of their project after the framing and wiring are done but before insulation and drywall are installed, to make sure that all the switches, outlets, lights, fans, and telephone connections are located where the client wants them to be.

Company president Joe Levitch asks his electrician to label the wires in each box (see photo) so that the team can confirm that wiring for all devices is correct. Levitch notes any incorrect items on a rough-in inspection form and asks clients to sign the form.
