State Electrical Rules

First, let me say that this list is incomplete and may not be totally accurate! It's always a good idea to check with your local building department before starting your project to see what is allowed and what may be required! I am constantly adding and revising information. If both columns for your state are green, then by my research you are legal to wire your own house. Of course, anywhere you are, you will need to get the proper permits.
