Ok, One project that i have in the works is to redo my 2nd bedroom to make it into an office. Right now I have primed it, and have the paint to finish painting it. Ir currently has 1 plug in it, and it's two prong
I would like to add 3-4 more plugs and put them on their own circuit. I would also like to replace the box for the light, as it looks odd and very old. I was planning on having an electrician do the work, but finding one at a decent price is taking a long time, and I am about ready to do it myself, so I wanted to know what the best way to go about it would be if I did do it myself.
Here are some pictures of the room:
I wans to place one plug on the wall to the bottom right, and one just to the right of the window here.
I want to place another plug to the left of the window here (sorry for the orientation.) the current plug is in the baseboard just out of view in the middle of the wall without the window.
And I was to place a plug to the right of the heat vent here. There is one in the hall just to the left (from this view) of the heat vent. Again, the only plug in the room is just to the bottom right of the picture in the baseboard.
The only plug.
And lastly, here is the ceiling box that is currently there. All the ceiling lights have the same box minus the kitchen and bath.
I have access to the attic above this room, but the walls to the left and right of the window have the rafters resting on them, with a peak over the window.
I also believe that I have a space next to my sewer vent pipe that I can run new cables up to the attic to get power up there.
My current thought is to run power up there, then run the wires down to the plugs in the walls, either individually from a junction box, or in series, but that requires more wire.
Are there other options other than busting up the wall more then just the boxes? Also, could I put the new boxes in the basebaoard like the other one instead?
