I am in the middle of remodeling my kitchen and have removed all of the switches because I am going to be adding a couple of new 3way switches at both enterances to replace the single switch. After removing them I realized that I needed the power to that switch in the fuse box on because that also sends power to my office.

When I reconnected the original switch I am not connecting the wires correctly because the kitchen switch needs to be on for there to be power in my office.

I am going to be adding new wire to the switches in the kitchen, so my question is how would I just connect the 2wire and 3wire cables that previously were interupted at the switch?

thanks in advance

If you only have a 2 wire and a 3wire cable you do not have enough wires for a 3 way switch and power out to other devices.

Basically what I am wanting to do is remove any of the connections to the fixtures/outlets/switches in the kitchen from the line coming from the fuse box and have the power first being used in the hallway then the office.

So I need to replace the wire in the attic to bypass those connections. So my question is how do I make the connection in the attic between the 2wire/3wire in a junction box? I am not sure this is what I have to do.

thanks
