In a residential job you won't see much multiwire branch circuit's anymore because of the afci requirement.
I'm actually doing more now. These four circuits would have been SP 15 amp breakers before arcfaults. Now this set up saves me over $40 in breaker costs, about $80 in labor cost, and over $14 in wire cost.
