In my new addition I'll be adding a subpanel due to lack of space in existing box. The issue I've got right now is the walls that I could add a panel in, have a truss directly above the top place, and a floor joist directly below. Is it code to make some sort of offset on the wall to run the conduit and romex through?

  • I don't really follow what you mean. Are you planning to embed the panel in the wall, or surface mount it? – Harper Jun 6 at 17:44
  • It will be embedded in the wall. It's a finished wall in a bedroom – user102486 Jun 6 at 18:44

    Can you provide a diagram of the situation? Also, I take it the walls you want to put the subpanel in run parallel to the trusses/joists? – ThreePhaseEel Jun 6 at 22:37
  • Are you talking about the gable end ,everything meets there? If so you are having a hard time now.Once closed in going to be harder. Can the panel go in other spot? – user101687 Jun 7 at 5:15
  • If the walls are 2x6 there should be room . And maybe some nail plates ,will be needed. Pics would be helpful. – user101687 Jun 7 at 5:26
