I'd think those codes depend on the location.

For example in Cook and DuPage Counties in Illinois (Chicago) you need to run all electrical wire in conduit.  1 County further west you can use romex.

I'd think when it comes to heating-there would be some rules.

But I just need to shut up because I need to build some shelves myself and ideally a fairly basic workbench. (something to clamp my grainmill too)

Even non exposed wires? E.g. in walls.

Yep. It's a MOB (I mean union) thing. Actually they blame THE GREAT FIRE that it's been that way ever since.
The moral majority, is neither.

Does anyone know about building codes and what to look out for when building walls near a furnace and an hot water heater? I'm interested in minimum distances and necessary ventelation.

Would not each individual municipality have its own building code?
At least around here.

If you have a water pump and tower you'll be fine though.   ;)


Those mash tuns are the most Terminator-take-over-the-brewing-process-scary I have ever seen.
