i have never seen a height requirement specific to a basement. The common practice is to simply make them as high or higher than the ones in the rest of the house. Most codes deal with distance from each other, like you mentioned

Thats what I was thinking. My father was dumbfounded when I told him I didnt see a code for height. So I wanted to double check with you guys! And I was going to copy the rest of the house anyways but just wanted to make sure there wasn't something I was missing!

Thanks

Well Sky if you knew me you'd know I was always either cranky or cantankerous. I've been banned from worse boards than this for such an immoral attitude.

I just laugh when in today's world guy are still using "hammer height". Either you work alone, or buy all your guys all the same hammer, or just don't care if all the receptacles are exactly the same.

Put it this way, I bought a rotary laser just to make sure the receptacles in big kitchens are EXACTLY the same. :thumbsup:

.....you do what you have to do.
Yup. Especially when the :censored: architect specs the receptacles horizontal in a 4" stone backsplash, in a 300+ sq/ft kitchen, in an old farm house, where NOTHING is level.
