That is a great question. I think that if the total of all four sides exceeds 24" then a receptacle is required by the definition of wall space in 210.52(A)(2)(1).
Yup, that convinces me. But I haven't ever placed a receptacle in an area like that, nor have I ever failed an inspection for not having one there. Great discussion though.(including space measured around corners)
Thanks for the reality check, Peter. I try my best to put a rec in any post. It's my nature, I guess. When I have been prohibited from doing so by the homeowner or GC, I've never been called on it during the inspection.Code required? I'd say absolutely yes.
Would I put one in? Possibly.
Would an inspector notice or care? Not on your life. At least my life.
