When I move the laundry, I'm considering switching to a gas drier -- but even so it'd be nice to have the 220V drop there for future-proofing.
However, if I'm not using it for the drier, I'd like to have it available in the workshop. Perhaps even if the drier is hooked up to it; I have the house to myself and don't need to do laundry and woodworking simultaneously.
So: Rumor has it that code would only allow one outlet per 220V circuit, to prevent any risk of simultaneous use. Is this true? If so I would need to either delay installing the new drier outlet, or spring for another pair of breakers (meaning more doubles to make room or a secondary box), or both. Or perhaps code would let me use the existing drier run to feed a secondary box, and pull the new drier drop off that? (Wouldn't be a bad thing for the workshop to have its own box anyway, perhaps with lockout or EPO...)
I know, I'm overcomplicating things. Just juggling ideas to see which ones fit.
