We are currently having a range hood installed and the power cord has been fed up to a powerpoint that has been placed on a roof beam in the roof cavity. The range hood will then be sealed off with a bulk head.
We have been told that the placement of the power outlet etc meets the requirements of the building code. Would this be correct? It seems pretty ludicrous to me that this kind of thing would be allowed especially if you need to turn off the applicance to do any maintenance to it?
