subpanel in a dedicated closet
i was wondering if a subpanel (which i plan to be a full panel in the future once i split into two meters) be located in a closet dedicated to it, and not exposed? it would be a very small closet with a 24" door and nothing else inside.
the reason i need to do it like this is because the main panel, from which i am diverting is in the basement directly under it and i will have to have unsightly JBs under the subpanel because most of the old cables won't reach the subpanel and i don't want to replace cables going on from the main panel onto the first receptacle.
having a closet allows me to enclose all this ugliness + the walls around the subpanel are plaster so i wouldn't really be able to even recess JBs so it would be REALLY UGLY
I can tell you already, the 24" door might be an issue if this is a shallow closet.
Here, this will help you along...
