This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will run some wire for an electrical project.  Wiring in unfinished spaces is kind of fun.  Once there is a finished wall/ceiling to work in, it gets trickier.  Let's give it a shot!

Here's a video of a guy running wire through his crawlspace up into a finished wall:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - run 20 feet of electrical wire (14 gauge or heavier)
  - at least one end must be in a finished wall or ceiling
  - attempt to follow local code so that you don't burn your house down

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the location before you start the job
  - the work midway through
  - the finished wire run
And then the flying monkeys attacked. My only defense was this tiny ad:
