comment Is it OK to have a 20 Amp receptacle on a circuit with 12 AWG wiring and a 15 Amp breaker?
My local code requires up-scaling to 12 AWG copper for all wiring, even if using 15A breakers and outlets.

comment What is an affordable 2D drafting software for amateurs?
Code in my area (NE Ohio) does not require this at all. I refinished my whole basement, which included a bathroom and kitchenette, and all I needed was a plumbing and electrical inspection after the work for that part was complete. Didn't even need a permit. No engineering drawings. Bottom line, check first before you start work.

comment Are there any differences in the quality of products sold at contractor's supply store vs. big box hardware stores?
Totally agree, my hampton bay is not good and it's noisy. I do not classify that into the "upper end". Have 2 hampton bays, both noisy, and three Hunter's and they rock.

I just did this for my basement stairs. I'll take some pics tonight and then post an answer.

comment How to install a proper deck ledger AFTER the fact?
Converting to a detached deck was my first thought also. Although many municipalities have different rules about attached and detached decks, so you might want to check.
