    Garage and outside receptacles

    Can anyone point me in the right direction on whether or not I can put an outside plug on with the garage circuit plugs?

    Unless things have changed, many residential outside receptacles are on the garage circuit, often protected by a GFCI in the garage.

    Under the 2017 you cannot put an outside receptacle on with the garage receptacles.

    Ha. And there you have it.

    Are you adding a outside receptacle to an existing garage (that might have outside receptacles already or were allowed then*), or is this new construction planning?

    *Would that matter?
