Old house new problems
We are giving the kitchen a facelift and I am trying to replace the old electrical gang boxes and switches. This is an old house so there are no ground wires in any of the boxes, unfortunately we can not afford to update the electrical at this time. Here is my problem: in a double gang box I have the power supply line with three wires, they are all the same color, two wires coming in from the light in the hall, again the wires are the same color, and two more wires coming in that somehow connect the power to the second floor, the wires are the same color. The previous wiring was so mangled I couldn't really see how everything was wired. I need to install two switches one controls the light in the hall, one controls the light in the basement and somehow keep power going to the upstairs. Any ideas?
