Is this attached picture possible? It is one power source running two different three way switches with separate light.

Well, Im wiring my house that I am in the process of building. I am not an electrician. I want to make sure that it is possible before the drywall goes upIt is possible, sure.
You have issues with it?
Humm...because the neutral would be hot then...? Do I have to use 4 wire?It used to be legal. Under current NEC, I am not sure it will pass the neutral at each switch location requirement.
Using xx3 cables to the box on the right, you will not have a neutral there.
No. Take both 2 wires to the switch box on the right.So like this...
This is my last diagram edit :smile:No. Take both 2 wires to the switch box on the right.
The white would not be a neutral. It would need to be the feed to the switch and marked as a hot.Humm...because the neutral would be hot then...? Do I have to use 4 wire?
This diagram is correct. The next tricky part is keeping the neutrals separate at the load side of the three way. If you put all the neutrals together at the load side box, everything will work but odd things may happen due to EMF and it would also be a code violation.This is my last diagram edit :smile:
