I've got Diamond handiwire from Lowes, label outdoor copper electrical wire, 12-2 UF-B, 600V. So I was wondering if this could be used (1) under the house which is on piers (where moisture is a consideration), and (2) between walls and attic? Its a little more difficult to pull without kinks, but... would it offer advantages, and most importantly is its use aboveground within code?
yes, it can be used indoors and outdoors .. it must be protected from physical damage .. it can be stapled to a joist , it can be direct burried , it cannot be run in conduit except for a short distance from the ground, up to an entrance into a building.. no, there is no advantage to using this type of wire indoors .. I find it more difficult to strip the outer covering off ..
to pull any plastic coated wire with less kinks .. you need to unroll it rather than pull it directly out of the bundle ..
