Not having luck with finding switches or running the wire or what?
Might be easier all around to replace the switch with a X-10 switch
(they are available to replace the switch and/or outlet, not just

It was just more complex wiring job than I anticipated, room had no
built in lights, just one plug controlled by a switch. I hardwired
the plug to always on. Took power into the switchbox, put in 3 way
switch, ran jumpers over to other side of room, took power from
between two switches to 5 recessed lights, then of course, the 3 way
dimmer switch on the other side. It just got a little confusing, blew
a few breakers when I didn't have it right, but finally got it sorted
out last night, even did it to code, putting all connections inside
FWIW: The actual recessed lighting installation was very simple, I
recomend anyone considering it give it a go, especially if you already
have power up in the ceiling.
