No. of Recommendations: 1
That sounds like a pretty ridiculous code, to me, actually. My parents had 2 stoves in the house in which I grew up - 1 in the kitchen and 1 in the basement.

Two kitchens are pretty common around here too, particularly in Italian families, but they no longer allow new ones to be put in. It's to avoid illegal duplexes.

Of course, one could assume that if someone were willing to do an illegal duplex, they would also have no qualms about putting in a line for the electric stove without permits and inspections.
