    Why are they basing the receptacle spacing on square footage?. We just got the linear stuff straightened out not that long ago so we didn't have to use the depth dimension in the spacing. It would have been easier to use the logic of receptacles for showroom windows since most counters are 2 foot deep.

    Stuff like this makes it in, but a valid proposal doesn't because it wasn't formatted correctly according to the style guide. Shaking head. If feel like Gibbs needs to head slap someone.

      Going to see if I got this...
      From 2017 we measure from the back of the wall.
      so now if the peninsula is shorter than 3’, we get an outlet.
      If its over 3’, we get another one up to a ~9’ peninsula.

      PLUS the one at the end.

      Yes?

        That is 9 sq. ft not 9 linear feet

          Yeah, but the counter being somewhere around 34” divides out to about 9’ with the first part added

          the first 9’sq is about 3’ long, unless it’s a weird counter setup. Then the 18 sq ft added makes somewhere around 9’.

          like was stated above, it was easier to just measure lineal ft
          now if you have a “standard” countertop, it’s one measurement, if you have a bigger countertop or a stepped countertop, it’s another measurenment.


          the homeowner has a peninsula built, you figure and add receptacles. The GC or the cabinet guy talks them into a bigger slab.
          crap, just failed inspection...

          homeowner is now mad because you just added to your quote.
