Just wired my first home in a bigger city 30 miles from my shop (rural Iowa). Since the 2008 code passed here a few months ago, I have passed all inspections pretty well. Different inspector in this town says I have to have #12 romex to ALL duplex recepts in the house. I did except the owner wanted switched recepts in the bedroom and living room. 14/3 is much easier to work with than 12/3. Also says I have 10 recepts on the circuit, and they allow 8 max. Just cost me 2 days work to pull new wire. How can a city add to the NEC without giving you info when you pull the permit? I always try to go above code and do great work, but this just gave me a bad attitude! Am I alone??
