Is a hotplate illegal in a legal addition put on a house?

Care must always be taken to ensure that there is sufficient clearance between the appliance location and combustible materials above them. In addition, a hot plate should not be located in a place where the heat control of the appliance would be accessible to children and others unfamiliar with its operation.

You should check with the local fire department and building department/inspectional services to see if it's ok and if used what guidelines they have. Depending on the use there can be very strict rules for hotplates.

Hope that helps,
