Installing switch from hose to attached garage

I want to put switch in house to control lights in garage. How do i run romex from garage through drywall into house? Do i need to use conduit to secure wire. Thanks

Installing switch from hose to attached garage

Without seeing your house the general principal is to cut holes in the drywall and drill holes through top plate to fish the cable. Or if you have an open attic above you might be able work from the attic and avoid some of the holes.

Then patch the holes when finished.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
