A confirmation on my switch box hook up.


Since I'm still a little new at this I like to run through any thing past the most very basic on the forum here, just want a confirmation shout out:

Scenario:
15amp/ 14/2 Romex
One source in to double switchbox, regular single pole switches, each to a separate fixture, plus one through power to another location.

1) the source black and powerthrough black nutted with 6" pigtails to to both switches.

2) blacks going out to light fixtures connected to their respective switches.

3) all whites nutted together, including white on the "through line"

4) all grounds nutted together with pigtails to the switches' ground nuts

Do I have it right?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

James

(always do the Ground and Neutrals first...
get 'em out of your way and tucked into the back of the box
)

1) (feed) and power through black nutted with 6" pigtails to both switches.
2) (switch loop) blacks to their respective switches.

Do I have it right?
Yep. And I bet it even works too.
