We're in the process of doing some minor reno in our basement, and we'd like to put our entertainment center in one corner. Unfortunately there's no plug near there, so I want to add one.
The basement is poured concrete with old faux-wood paneling over 1x3 strips. The romex for the existing plugs generally runs along the sill plate, stapled to the rafters. Because of the space constraints in the wall, I'd rather not try to pigtail in the box, so the solution I was thinking was to cut out the existing line near where I want the new outlet, install a junction box in the ceiling to some new romex, and the back out of the outlet into a second junction box, which connects to the rest of the run.
Am I out of my mind, or does this work? Is there a better way?
Thanks very much in advance.
