Bedroom and bath circuit requirements?
 
It seems that the kitchen requirements are pretty readily available to find. I have lots of holes in our basement ceiling to cover all of the required circuits for that. While I have made a disaster I'm thinking about running a few cold lines so we do not have to do that again. We may, or may not finish our 2nd floor but if we do, I would anticipate 2 bedrooms and a bathroom... any way to know how many circuits that might require?

The bathroom is a seperate circuit. You can cover everything in the bath. You can put both bedrooms on a single circuit if you like. This is assumming that you have normal loads in both areas.

Those are spare circuits. One 12 gage dedicated for the bathroom. Another 12 gage for the bedrooms receptacle outlets. One 14 gage for the upstairs lighting. Good idea on your part to look ahead. Mark the wires and leave them outside the panel until needed.
