I'm in the process of remodeling a bathroom and need to re-frame a portion of the wall that had water/termite damage. The wood work itself shouldn't be too hard but there are romex lines running through the bottom of it:
I really don't want to run new lines all the way from the breaker box. What's the easiest way handle electrical here? I was originally thinking:
1) Shut off power.
2) Cut line and remove the both ends from the funky wall.
3) Fix the wall/frame.
4) Drill holes and reinsert the wire
5) Add a junction box and reconnect the wires.
The first issue though is that I don't think there's enough slack here.
So does that mean that I'll have to cut the wire and replace at least replace the part from the cut to the bathroom light, switch, etc?
