Trying to get low-voltage cables from the basement to the attic, the best route goes through a utility closet framed with a flat-stud wall on two sides (the third side is an exterior wall which I would prefer to avoid). The bottom plate is a 2x2 sitting on top of the floor.
I can't find any mention in the building code here in Seattle about limitations on drilling or notching of bottom plates, only of studs and top plates. Should I take that silence as an indication that it's okay to drill or notch as much as I want of the 2x2 bottom plate in order to bring the cables through? Would removing a entire piece of the bottom plate be an option?
