receptacle missing?

It seems to me that this is considered a wall or is it not since it is spindles rather than a closed in half wall?


The columns missing a receptacle wouldn’t get a second look from me.

The 2006 IRC Commentary says:

If that is part of a habitable room and not a hallway it would need receptacles the same as a framed wall.

They should install one of them new “wireless” receptacles. Just duct tape it to the side of one of them spindles. :slight_smile:
