My attic has a ceiling light controlled by two 3 way switches connected with BX 14/3. Source and light wires were old knob & tube now replaced with Romex 14/2.

The duplex outlet is a new addition. The attached diagram is how I thought it could be wired. The duplex and switch 1 will be in one box. Romex 14/2 from source and light and BX will enter the box.

The diagram shows source connected to duplex. Then a short black wire runs from other duplex hot terminal, wire nutted to BX white wire with black tape, to common on switch 2. Load runs from common on switch 1 to light. I didn’t show ground wires to keep diagram simple, but everything will be grounded. The purpose of this layout was to minimize pigtails & wire nuts. Does this layout meet the NEC?

I posted this again because I couldn't find my original post so thought it didn't get posted. The only difference from the first post was the added sentence stating the purpose of the layout.

Thanks, henrylr enter image description here
