I found out I am in the middle of a pi**ing contest between an insurance adjuster and a building management group. There was a fire in a 6 unit apartment house, and the insurance company wants to re-use as much material as possible, including soot-covered electric baseboard heaters. The property owners and myself insist on code upgrades. As of yesterday I hadn't spoken to the inspector myself. But I have since done so, and he has no problem with the installation as submitted, and, as expected will require wiring to the current codes. I guess second hand information is all but useless.
Thanks for the input.

Considering all the circuits required for a kitchen, as well as the code's advice to allow for future growth, I think that a sub-panel for the kitchen is a wonderful idea! Review: 2 appliance circuits; dishwasher/disposal circuit; refrigerator circuit; microwave circuit; 2 range circuits; lighting circuit. There goes an 8-space panel! (List of reasonable circuits- not required ones!)
