Jim, that's a great point! Yvonne, thank you for the kind words. And spmm, having power where needed is indeed great. A few years ago I put an outlet in the bathroom closet- now I can plug in my toothbrush and beard trimmer without leaving them on the counter. It's great!

After all of the electricals are roughed in, it is a great idea to take as many photos as you can to document where the cables (and plumbing) are running within the walls. This is very useful when you want to add a shelf or hang a picture in the future.
