Can someone tell me the outlet height restrictions for an ADA bathroom, or steer me to the info ? It's a resi basement remodel that I haven't seen yet. What I found is 15" receptacle min., switches at 48" max. (unobstructed). Sound right ?

Thats about it. Or any provisions needed by the customer.

Additional stuff can be found in the building codes, but it's based on a national standard.

Great site Sparky.

Derator, remember in Private residences the ADA is not required. So adjust to personal needs and preferance.

My son is in a chair, so our house was built around him, ADA? no chance, byt very functional.

So get with the customer,grab your tape messure, and have at it.
