Getting another circuit into the eating area of my
kitchen is proving much more difficult in fact than
it looked on paper (connecting to old work). One
option is to connect the eating-area outlets
to the kitchen counter circuits. If inspectors
differ on this that is good to know too.
Each 20A kitchen circuit will have a GFCI
outlet protecting two additional outlets.
I have not done the home-runs so I have't
decided if I will run two 12/2 wires or use
a single 12/3 with a shared common.
From the GFCIs each circuit will power one
outlet on either side of the sink and then
power one outlet one either side of the
island. This is galley layout with the sink
centered against the wall opposite a slide
in range in an island. Both counters are around
six feet long. The wall between the kitchen
and the family room has been removed to open
to space and streach the counters and cabinets
five more (very needed) inches. There is an
additional four foot counter on a side wall
for assistant cooks and electical appliances.
This counter will have the two GFCI outlets.
I figured out this option too late to call my
inspector before this weekend.
Thanks for any help
