Electrical, Gas & Ground Line over Baths Stubs


We are signed up with a builder for a single family home with an unfinished basement. The main electrical panel is located in the basement and the power line that is brought from outside enters just above a bath stub. See attached picture. The main gas line, a grounding line and the AC unit lines are also around the same area. Will this be an issue when we finish that wall which will be a bathroom. Does it pass code?

The builder's representative (sales contact) conveniently says " it would interfere in anyway with the bathroom" I am not sue about it.

Thanks for your input

Welcome to the forums!

Electrical is in the wall so it is not an issue. You can have gas and electrical cables in the same space without issue.

Your sales guy is correct. Everything else looks OK to me as well.

What I believe is your main electrical line from the meter enters the wall cavity and goes up. How far is it from there to the main electric panel? Do you have a disconnect outside by the electric meter?
