Question

outlet height beneath large casement windows


what is min. height for wall outlets? i want 2 under my 6x12' picture window type casements. there is only 8 or 9 " from floor to bottom of windows.
they would still be above the 3" moulding though, sooo, ok?

tnkx! DM

Since you have little space, just put them where they look best. Probably center them between the floor and window frame. There is no NEC rule in this regard.

They can even be placed in the floor close to the wall, as is the case when large windows go all the way to the floor. Agreed, no minimum height requirement above the floor.
