Who would inspect it for being "code" ? Is that really important ?

I pulled a permit for my room. I'll need to have a final inspection once I get the columns in and the receptacles wired up.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

Same here. Fully permitted. Otherwise it's too much of an insurance risk should something ever happen.

Never say never! Make it removable! My sub project required me to remove back right rear column. Sure glad we decided to make columns removable!

Just saying.....

We were talking about running the high voltage in / through the columns in addition to the low voltage. Inspectors could care less about low voltage, except that the wall penetrations are fire sealed.

NEC usually requires lots of electrical outlets (every 8' plus near corners and doors, I think), so they're putting the outlets in the columns to avoid putting holes in the walls.

Within 3 feet of the door on each wall and every 12' maximum thereafter....
