Believe me Washington DC was 3 codes back at one time. I always try to preface something about depending on local codes. Typically DIY'ers are not in a position to argue with some inspectors that seem to write their own code and from our couches there is nothing we can do about that

Try living in New Jersey. New work is the 2011 NEC with amendments. Rehab work is the 2008 NEC. But we still use the 2005 NEC for some of 210.8 gfi requirements for new and rehab. Then we have the UCC. A lot of contractors don't understand it either. And some inspectors as well.

We work in multiple states and the District as well, luckily for 80% of what we do codes are not an issue.
