basement wiring

AFCI's would not be required for the heater or dryer, only lighting/receptacle circuits. There is no limit on the number of receptacles on the circuit, however, 23 is MUCH more than I would put on one single circuit.

No rule about feeder entering from the top left, etc.

Marking of the cables is needed here only during the time you are connecting things up. Just to keep the switches and cables for the different banks of lights from being confused with each other. If the labels are still readable when you are done, no harm leaving them there.


It is difficult to shop locally when the locality slaps you with a fine if you are a little slow getting back to your car.
