I'm about to finish framing my basement and start on the wiring. I know I need to drill the holes 1 1/4" in on the 2x4 and have outlet's spaced so you don't need to go more than 6'with the cord. What I'm not sure of is how many outlets and lights I can have on a 15 or 20amp circuit. Are the boxes required to be a certian distance off the floor and is there any special height off the floor at which I should run the wires through the stud? Can or should I use 14 ga. wire for the outlets or does it need to be 12 ga? Is there any specail GFCI rules in basements? I don't won't want to ask the inspector because the more I asked him when I did my garage the more he was against me doing it myself although he thought the end product was just fine.
