Nice quality work. Good pitch. What are the posts for? Warning signs?
Why the meter box and weatherhaed? Can you not run a sub panel from the main panel in the house and underground? How come emit is being run for a garage door opener? And bx for other devices... Excuse my ignorance for Florida electrical code requirements.
We're moving the meter there. Getting a new drop, then we're going underground to the existing box. That way there are no cables above the garage and it looks cleaner. The thinner conduit near where the garage door opener will go is for the lights that will be placed there. The garage door opener will have the thicket conduit.
Oh and we're in socal
Damn I love seeing garages go up. Can't wait to see it all finished.
Years ago a customer wanted to do the same thing you did, but the local inspection authority wouldn't allow it, because the garage was detached. It had something to do with the potential to run a business with machinery out of the garage. I though that was a pretty dumb response.
Very well done. I see they moved the service drop. Did they run out of shingles? No ridge vent, just end vents?
I have to tell you, that's the cleanest job site I've ever seen. Are you doing the clean-up or are the trades doing that themselves?
So second coat of stucco done. They also came back and finished the roof.
Barry, yeah they ran out of shingles on sat. They are cleaning up after themselves but there is a trash pile. I did just learn that I am responsible in removing the trash pile Oh well I guess I should've read the contract a little better. It's not that big of a deal, I do have access to a couple dumpster at work.

Sorry for all the questions. Is the left pipe coming out of the meter a sleeve for the copper ground? Scrappers are stealing those off of commercial buildings. Sleeving would certainly make the copper more difficult to get to.
