Maybe I kept the post short to keep it simple, but that made me LOL a bit... So in order to comply with code, to make up the extra 2' I need to reach my circuit breaker, I would splice inside a junction box into which I can only get 3 inches of the cable that was too short, to make the 3 inches get to the required 6" I could splice another 3" inside this junction box, so now I have 3 wires spliced together?
All of this is to avoid having to buy more 14-2 cable since I don't have enough to do the whole run. Now it's just sounding silly, I'm leaning towards replacing it with 12-2 cable which I have enough to spare (Just bought my second 250' roll, and I expect to need around 115' of it)
