wiring finished/unfinished basement

One of my basement projects involved ripping down part of a previously finished basement. The plan is to leave a good portion of the basement as painted block walls. I see that there are different wiring codes for finished and unfinished basements. My question is, in respect to wiring, what is considered finished and what is considered unfinished?

Thanks again - great forum!

What constitutes finished and unfinished is a judgement call.

I would say that if you have no formall walls and have simply painted the block wall that the area is not finished.

Some jurisdictions consider floor covering the sign of a finished space.
