Code requirements for remodel wiring?


Gents, just wondering if anyone has ever had any experience with codes in TN that regards remodel wiring?

I am adding a few outlets on an outside wall of a room in my basement, and wall sconces on the back wall. I can run the wiring through the top plates in the framing and into a remodel box, however the wiring will not be stapled to the framing on the inside of the walls. I am guessing that this is the only way to do this, and I dont feel like removing the sheetrock in order to tackle the project.

Anything wrong with this in regards to safety or code violations?

Thanks!

Is this your question?

is not stapling wires when fishing them through a sheetrocked wall ok? If that's the question the answer is, it's fine.

That pretty much summed it up.

Just wanted to give the full run down to avoid confusion.

Thanks.
