I know we have talked about this before but thought I'd bring it up again. I can't see any reason why we can't run romex under an eve or up under a patio cover behind the studs (where it would be behind the drywall if there was drywall there) in a home, as long as it is not subject to mechanical damge or out in the weather. Especially here in AZ where its dry most of the time. Years ago back in Mich., we used run romex in unfinished residential garages and it was legal. It could be run in UF to make it better too.
The Golden Rule - "The man with the gold makes the rule"
53,- #1 Resi garages that are unfinnished are protected from the elements, so RX is o.k. #2 RX is not to installed in wet locations. #3 A yellow Seathed 12 RX would not looked very good stapled to the side of the house where you can see it. #4 It would more professinal just to sleeve it pvc or emt.
Shoot first, apologize later.....maybe
