Outlet height in garages


Don't know about other sources of speculation about an 18 inch rule, but a lot of home inspectors believe such a rule exists because it is shown in illustrations in the Carlson Dunlap training materials and reproduced in the "Illustrated Home" book published by the same source (illustration 622) - it's in there, however, because it's a Canadian requirement, it's not present in the NEC.

----------

Home Inspection: ""A business with illogically high liability, slim profit margins and limited economies of scale. An incredibly diverse, multi-disciplined consulting service, delivered under difficult in-field circumstances, before a hostile audience in an impossibly short time frame, requiring the production of an extraordinarily detailed technical report, almost instantly, without benefit of research facilities or resources." - Alan Carson

A LOT of H-I's like to call things out that are not an issue. Why should this be any different.
