The code is the code and good practice and correct installation procedure and techniques still apply to everyone, homeowner and electrician alike.
Getting back to fire insurance, when a fire occurs and the homeowner wired a circuit that causes a fire, the homeowners insurance may not cover the fire. I would say will not
, but I'm sure somewhere there is an exception.
The other side of the coin is why skimp to save a few bucks when the stakes are so high? Would you skimp on the size of your brake lines or take a chance on running bald tires on the highway with your family in the car?
Why do it with a circuit in your garage?
