Showed up at this house for trim out to find furniture everywhere. Only temp lights and 6 temp GFCI receptacle circuits are connected, all other circuits are waiting, and now I can barely get to the panel. GC didn't meet the deadline, now I'm going to pay for it in aggravation...

The job that never ends... (Same "nightmare house" that I roughed-in in August)

This is certainly something we don't run into out here on new construction (this wasn't a remodel, was it?).
Until everything is finalled, an owner can't move in a stick of furniture. To do so would incur major inspection dept. wrath.
