This is a 200A panel and a sewage ejector panel that I did in a new home, someone will find something wrong about them.

I think it looks great. [Linked Image]

In some areas that would not pass as some areas prohibit running NM / SE exposed below about 8'.

What you have there is a typical installation (although neater) in this area and I have yet to see the NM damaged when used like this.

I think it looks great too.

The only thing I'd have done differently is use RNC for those 2 circuits going left and right near the bottom of the panel along the concrete wall. To me, that IS subject to physical damage.

I'd also have preferred using RNC/ EMT instead of the running board used at the sewage ejector panel.

I agree....only some little quibbles.

Here romex, when run exposed, has to be protected (in pipe) until 7'6" above the floor.

Good eye, Marc....apart from that staple holding way too many cables (look at the way the legs are spread), some of the cables appear to be stapled 'on edge,' a code violation.

Sewage pump is hard wired, the grounds are to the left of the se, I was never shot down for cables below 8', circuit on right is emt, circuit in left was done by the well water co., only 2 wires per staple.

I see alot of panels on this forum mounted to wood thats mounted to the cement wall.

Whats with the wood? How come the panel itself mounted to the wall. Seems like extra work.

I also agree the 12-2 on the left going to the GFCI should be protected.. same with the one below the panel. Other than that looks great.
