Ideally I would like to design rooms with furniture in mind and such that there aren't any outlets on exterior walls.

But as far as I know, every state requires outlets to be no more than 12 feet apart. I don't want to be restricted. Is there a way around this?

Here are some ideas. I often see on real estate listings that a bedroom is "non-conforming". Can I claim that every room in my house is a closet? Can I claim that I will be off-grid, and then put in a few outlets and get a power hook up later? Are there any exemptions I can claim, for example if I have sufficient rural acreage that can't potentially burn down a neighbor's house? Can I claim to be handicapped? Can I claim it's evil to destroy the environment by having excessive outlets? Can I bribe someone with a license on Craigslist to sign off on it? I know every rich person in California is building with illegal concrete in an earthquake zone so there must be ways around these kinds of things.

Thank you.

'No more tha 12 feet between sockets' doesn't sound like much of a imitation. In any case, nothing to stop you putting a sideboard on a wall which has a socket, it just means you can't use that socket.
