2. Can they make a change to the order of inspection. Since it is not a "traditional" shower (sloped liner/hot mop/pan with mortar bed above) can they do the inspection at a later date. They'll still want to inspect your framing and rough plumbing before you button the walls up, but explain to them how a pan doesn't go in until after the drywall in a Kerdi shower. Where I live, I've gotten the Kerdi inspected as part of the lath inspection. Your mileage may vary.
