Is there a requirement or 'best:' height for switches?
We're abt to wire our house and wd appreciate some suggestions, in addition to the separate post abt receptacles.
1) We are thinking about mounting switches for exterior lighting below (or above) the regular height for interior lighting. Will that have code issues? Our thinking is that it will logically separate the lighting around the house to reduce confusion.
2) If we go with two-tier switches, what should the height of them be (measured from finished floor to centerline of boxes)?
3) And locations that would have only one tier (just inside lights) what wd be the optimum height for them?
4) Lastly, how far away from finish jamb trim should the boxes be mounted?
Thanks for feedback, Mark
