Gunny, Planning your outlet location requires following a couple simple rules. You need to have one every 12 feet of runnning wall space and one for every 2 ft of usable wall space. You usually find those in between closet doors etc, it does not count the space behind doors. You also consider usable wall space 1ft high as in under windows etc. After that, you can put them anywhere you want them to figure in to the rules. They are meant to be convenience items and placed as such. Hope that helps.

It all depends on the location and circuit ampacity. Kitchens usually only have 2 or 3. Garages can have anywhere from 1 to 14. Dining room circuits can only have outlets on them that serve the dining room. Clothes washing machines, air conditioners, and other appliances get their own circuits. Throughout the house, such as bedrooms, hallways, living rooms, ets, generally don't go over 14.
