Yes, that sort of thing.
Sure it would be a little more expensive, but I think it's necessary.
It can't be that much more expensive. I buy nice residential outlets
for $1.25 and those can essentially be used as junctions. In fact,
that's what I will probably do. Instead of a junction box, I'll put an
electrical box there with three outlets. I will use the home run wire
to power each outlet and use the remaining connections on the outlets
for the effective connections. Is this a bad idea for some reason.
