I am in the final stages of wiring up an area of the house which contain a laundry room and home office areas. There is a dining room and living room which also come into play due to existing wiring. I kind of like the idea of one set of circuits for each room (or function per room), but I'm trying to prevent myself from doing my usual thing of making it perfect and creating extra work that doesn't need to be done.
Here is where I am now:
LR and DR have a single 15a circuit which runs 11 LED recessed lights (five are on a 4-way) and 2 center lights (maybe will have a fan in one some day)
LR and DR have separate circuits for receptacles (each)
My plan is to extend the DR receptacle circuit to include one additional hall light, two bathroom lights, 4 recessed office lights, and 1 center office light/fan. The office already has one receptacle on this circuit which connects through an existing wall, so there it stays. I don't expect a huge draw from anything in the dining room receptacles and all the lighting is LED.
Because I wanted a 20a circuit dedicated to the office, I have wired the receptacles in 12# and plan to make at least one home run for the "desk wall" Does anyone think 20a is not enough for a modern home office? If so I could split it into two.
The final question is for the lighting. It would be a PITA but I could move the DR recessed/center off of the LR circuit and run it's own power. OR I could tie it into the DR receptacle circuit and run the office/hall/bathroom lighting on it's own circuit, but that almost seems like six of one and a half dozen of another. It's also worth noting the 4-way circuit is already in place.
Not sure why I'm getting so obsessive about it all, other than I get one shot and prefer to do it right. In this case though it really might not be worth the extra effort
Thanks for any advice!
