Wire Runs In Attic


If I run wires perpendicular to the rafters in an attic to supply second-floor rooms below the attic, how do I get the wires from the rafter down to the floor of the attic? I can't leave the wire free-standing, but I can't work where the rafter meets the attic floor. The drop has to be out 2 or 3 feet from the edge.

You can run a 2X4 from the rafter to the floor joist and clip the cable to this!
