wire limitations between studs?
I have relocated a door that goes from my house into my garage. So I have the first section to the right of the door with the sheetrock removed. I have a 2 gang box on the inside room nailed closest to the door going out to the garage. It is attached to the left stud. I need to put the 2 gang switch box on the garage side in that same space - so I was going to attach it opposite of the existing switch box - so it would be on the right stud. Is there a limit to how many 14/2 wires I can run up inside that space? It may be like 3 up the left stud and 3 up the right stud. Is this OK?
Hope this makes sense.
