How To Install An Electrical Outlet Under A Sink - The new junction box and receptacle could be set up at the lower back wall of the sink cupboard. The nm cable wishes to penetrate the cupboard floor directly under the junction field. I drilled a 1 inch hollow inside the cabinet bottom almost without delay above the hollow inside the subfloor with a wooden dull drill bit to reroute the nm-b cable. I dropped the flashlight attached to a lanyard so i wouldn’t lose it via the hollow within the bottom of the kitchen cupboard and used the dentist’s replicate tool to look for the hollow inside the subfloor to the basement ceiling crawlspace. The 2 holes had been offset by using several inches and with some finesse i was able to manual the nylon fish tape via the two holes:.

It become complicated however i used to be able to manual the fish tape over the cross-runs of nm-b cables to preserve the new department circuit off the suspended drywall ceiling when you consider that i won’t be capable of fasten the nm-b cable with cable staples to the floor joists. The pink rectangular inside the photograph shows wherein the fish tape runs up thru the subfloor to the kitchen cupboard.
