romex behind baseboard trim
In the systematic rewiring of my home, some of the duplex receptacles are going to be real tough to go up to from the basement.
One of my DIY books shows a technique of removing the baseboard, and drywall behind it then notching the framing for the romex. Lastly, placing a metal plate over the notched section and replacing the drywall and trim.
Sounds pretty slick to me, but wouldn't the romex be dangerously close to the surface of the wall? Seems like the risk of hitting it with the finish nailer would be pretty high. What do you think?
