Re: Island receptacles
I think this is one of those that you have to be there to make the call.
A island could be a room divider just as a peninsula can be a room divider. If the end of the island (small dimension) faces the other room, then probably not going to be wallspace. If the long side faces, then it could be wallspace.
Most new houses (in our city) now have a family room facing the kitchen. so the "wallspace' recep's cannot be on the SA circuits. Well they call it a family room, even though everybody probably sits there and eats in front of the TV.
