1. The bottom of my outlet box is a hammer length which is about 12"-13" or so. The holes above the box that i am pulling are at 25". Is this too high for the hole? Is there a limit ?? I am going to run another line just above the 25" hole at about 28" to get the wire to another room. It seems like the cleanest way to do it.
2. I have a situation where my top plate is connected to a floor joist lengthwise. I need to get the wire from a switchbox up to the ceiling for a light fixture. I am not sure how I can run the wire without notching the joist, or drilling a hole in the top plate into the floor joist.
