Fuggin’ brrrrrr! Was that a sippy cup hanging from your belt in the first part of your video?

Why waste all the wire by running it high then dropping it down to the boxes? Why not use nail plates to protect the wire on each stud? If it is the portion of wire in the bay that worries you it is not secure enough to not move aside should a nail/screw poke through at their level.

Sorry about your water troubles. Hope the French drain fixed your issue.

Thanks for the video always fun to watch.

Thanks Tony. Not a sippy cup, per-say, but it is like my sippy cup :-P I drink a fair amount of water, and prefer it to be ice water, so I have a thermos travel mug that I’ve always got ice water in that I pretty much bring everywhere lol

The idea was to get the wire in a place that wouldn’t be anywhere I might want to mount things like cabinets (hung or base), attach a workbench to the wall, or anything like that which I’d likely overkill and use more than a 1-1/2” screw. I know it’s going to use more wire than it would otherwise, but I guess it’s worth the peace of mind for me later on, at least in my own head. It’s up high enough that I likely won’t be attaching anything up there except maybe some long term storage (like lumber rack, shelves, etc), which would stay lower so I’d have room to use it anyway. Entirely unnecessary, though, I don’t disagree lol
