Switches in the wrong spot

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm crazy, but doesn't it seem....odd that the builder would put the main light/fan switch for the master bath on a wall 2ft from the door??? Not to mention that the switch is not even located inthe room itself. Not a 3 way.

What could be said from a HI point of few? Anyone got a code site that would call this "wrong?"

Is it a load bearing wall? Is there a beam resting on top of the wall at that particular point? could be 5-10 2x4's bolted together there.

I re-did my "wifes" kitchen/dining and her switches are about a foot and a half from the door way, we're used to it now but there were a bunch of 2xs there from an interesting framing detail over the stairwell.
