We have a telephone system in a room downstairs with two jacks in it; one of them is connected to a phone in that room.
I am hoping to get a rotary phone installed in a room upstairs. I am in the process of ordering one as well as getting a pulse-to-tone converter. This is a two-story house; however, there is nothing actually on top of the room where the unit is downstairs (besides the roof).
We installed some new RJ45 wiring about a year ago (it was a little fun). However, this might only be temporary; maybe in use for two years at the most.
- Is it legal to run wires along walls and tape them to ceilings? I can't find anything related to doing that in fire code, etc...
- Are there any regulations when doing this?
- Is there anything easier than just buying a 100 ft. telephone line and running it across the first floor, up the stairwell, and across the second floor?
There is already no budget for the process, so I am not looking for complex solutions that require anything more than tape and a screwdriver.
