    Correct, they are either putting rebar in the footing or they are not. Making it a CEE simply involves extending a conductor to the electrical equipment.

    I know, I suggested there is a loophole in using only MWBC's to avoid needing AFCI's - but I know that won't go over very well even if you have pretty convincing justification prepared.

    It is a 120/240 volt circuit, 120/208 and 277/480 are pretty common also.
