That is correct. The cables can be used for either 20 or 15 amp circuits as the breaker dictates circuit capacity. There are exceptions.

I just find it unusual for a contractor to use a more expensive wiring method than he is required to use.

House is beautiful Beth. Love that shower enclosure!

Beth,
I just caught up on this thread. Your house is going to be gorgeous! You will be very happy and comfortable there.

And that kitchen looks like it will cook up lots of meals for all of your DC friends to come and share - I have dibs on a bar stool and am not afraid to use my cane to get it!

I forgot to ask the electrician, but an educated guess would be this is the reason for the 20 amp wire. I asked for a well built house.

The bar chairs came last week, 2 weeks early, and I am storing them in the pantry. Dibs have been registered on one of them. Bathroom is (almost) finished. The toilet and kitchen sink fixtures have stand-ins until the proper ones are delivered.

Front hallway slate was shorted and reordered and the fireplace is finished.

We really are related - we just barge in, invite ourselves and take over the place!

Oh, and they are bar chairs - they have nice backs and cushy seats!

With love,
