Subject: Wiring


Name: helen



Question: My husband attempted to move our thermostat to another wall because I want a mirror on the wall where it was. He went up into the attic space (not really an attic) and made a hole in a 2x4 placed horizontally between two studs but he still couldn't get the wire down. I think it's because there's another 2x4 about two feet down - is there a way to get the wire down to where the thermostat needs to be? thanks.

Answer: Hi Helen,

I would go to your local home center and pick up an extra long drill bit. The make bits 3-4 feet long. If that is not long enough you can always get drill bit extensions.
