moving wiring runs in attic


Hi Guys I am fixing to raise the ceiling in my kitchen/dining from 8' to 10' , both sets of ceiling joist already exist and there are some electrical runs between the 2 sets fo ceiling joist. My question is how do I go about getting the runs up above the 10' set of joist? Do I just cut the wires, pull them around to the top side of the joist and wire them back together in a box with wirenuts? There are about 4 runs and one of them is my 220 for my stove.
Thanks in advance fo rthe advice!
Derek

As long as the boxes are accessable. Personally, I would pull new wires and do it that way.
