Having a hard time finding codes strictly relating to residential boat houses.
If there is anyone that could give a code reference and some basic do's and dont's it would be greatly appreciated.

If you pay close attention to scope 555.1, it says"Private, noncommercial docking facilities constructed or occupied for the use of the owner or residents of the associated single-family dwelling are not covered by this article".
Does anyone know the do's and dont's of residential boat house's.
Any info would be appreciated.

Hey Shadow what do you want to know? Treat it as a wet location garage. I found nothing specific to resi boathouses and I have wired 2. Just did what customer wanted using 555 as a guide and treatedb as wet location mostly.
