You could also bring a 2 wire from the service to the switch and leave the the switch with two wire and go to each light.
I prefer the second method as it is the the simpliest way and will be less confuesing for you and anyone in the future who may need to work on it.
Okay. I guess I'll just run 14/2 to the switch and then to all of the lights. I didn't know if there was a more efficient way to do this, but I'm thinking I'll be better off just keeping it simple.
See my updated sketch for confirmation.
What's the best way to secure the romex in the crawlspace? Should I attach a 1x3 to the bottom of the floor joists and staple the cable beneath the 1x3? Or do I need to bore holes in the joists? I'll be wrestling with insulation if I have to bore through the joists...
Thanks for the suggestions.
BTW - I plan on having this inspected. I just like to know what I'm going to do before I jump into a project.
