This is a question about the design for the all new wiring. The house is one side of a side-by-side twin, so in our area it is called a semi-detached home. It has a full basement with high open ceilings. Access to all areas of the other walls and ceilings is easy because the interior of the property is being gutted down to the studs and joists.
A new 200-amp service panel has already been installed, and it is located on the front wall of the basement.
The basement goes straight back under the living room, dining room, and kitchen which are on the first floor. The second floor has a front bedroom, middle bedroom, back bedroom, and bath next to the back bedroom. The third floor has a small bathroom in the front corner, a main front/middle bedroom, and a back bedroom.
My question is about how to plan the wiring.
Since this is a long and high house, does it make sense to just run all of the wiring directly from the main panel in the basement? Or, would it make more sense to strategically locate one or two subpanels (such as on the second and third floors), run power to those subpanels, and then run local circuits to each of those areas off of the subpanels?
