comment Where do I attach the grounding conductor to my bedroom light fixture?
Is the light fixture attached to a metal, or plastic box? Does the light fixture, or the fixture strap have a green screw anywhere on them?

comment How do I wire a 3 gang switch in my new bath?
You can use 12/3 to feed the exhaust fan, since you'll share the neutral at the fan. Black will be switched hot for light, Red switched hot for the fan.

comment What is the official name for wiring hole stops/plugs and where can I buy them?
+1 for grommets. Duct Seal is commonly used to seal wire/cable entrances since it stays soft, can be painted, and won't interact with commonly used plastics or metals.

comment How do I string a low voltage wire between two buildings?
You have to be more specific than "low voltage". Do you mean 120/240V, Radio and Television, Broadband communications, or other communications?

comment Can CFL bulbs in a fixture with a dimmer switch damage old wiring?
What does this mean, "Our wiring is not functioning"? Is the CFL not lighting up, did it ever? Do other incandescent bulbs work? Do you have a multimeter?
