dumb electrical question
 
Sorry for the dumb question:
If I am laying new romex wire, do I have to put all the connections/splices in junction boxes (like handy boxes) behind walls or in soffits?

THX!:thumbup:

All splices and connections must be in accessible junction boxes. You can not bury them inside walls or soffits even if they are in a junction box.

All joints are required to be in junction boxes! All junction boxes have to be accessable!:yes:
