Ok, I need help with this one. I am finishing my basement and lighting is everything. I want to wire three switches in the same box on one circuit, and I want to make all three switches a 3 way. is this possible or am i just smoking crack? I reside in fredericksburg, va. the total watts for the circuit is 740 and that is a high estimate.

You would wire this the same as three 3 ways in single boxes except you could pigtail the incoming power to feed the 3 switches.

Where does your electricial supply enter, at one of the switchboxes, or one (or more) of the fixtures. Or...are you completely free to run wire to anywhere at this point?

Are you familiar with three-way installation in general? My suggestion is to get onto your favorite internet seach engine and search for "three way wiring diagram". One can come up with lots of diagrams, such as:

is it possible to get a diagram
here is a diagram I had saved with two three-way switches where one controls a fan motor and the other controls the light canopy on the fan. Im sure you can get the idea of just adding another 3-way switch with the first two at the left
