Okay, I DO appreciate the tips, but my question is how do I get power
to the island WITHOUT attaching to the ceiling or raising the floor.
I've already gotten approval from the wife to put in a bar (and pool
table, and TV on the wall, etc), and want to just take that and run
with it. If I have to, I'll use the speedbump power cord idea, but
would really like something that doesn't look so industrial. The
floor will be engineered wood floor, and the plan is to have that wood
flooring across the entire basement (except in the bathroom and
workout space), so running a Romex cable underneath isn't really a
possiblity I don't think. I have an angle grinder, so I guess I'll do
some test-cuts tonight. Would 1/2 inch conduit be sufficient? Any
idea how deep it would need to be?
