In the last picture, I have not stapled the wires down yet.
THIS is how another run looks. The thin plywood is only up there to try to keep the heat away from us below, and is removed as I drywall, then blown insulation is added on top. The inspector approved this room already.

You only have to support 12" from a JB. Along the run you can support up to every 4.5'.
