Refinishing a basement room
Sounds good. I believe most people prefer to run 14/2 for lights and 12/2 for receptacles. You just can't combine the two and if you do then you can only put them on 15 amps. Don't quote me on this but as long as you have less than 12 outlets on a circuit you should be OK. You have more knowledgeable guys than me in here, give it a few minutes and I am sure they will chime in.
