What is the best way to route / plan a lighting circuit only coming from the panel box?
- attic light on pull chain
- bathroom light w single pole switch
- 3Way Switch ---- SSLL config
Do I come from the panel box
-- to the attic light then go down
-- to the Single Pole Switch & assoc Light
-- then go from the Single Pole Switch
-- to the 1st 3 Way Switch (I'm ok from there on) its just everything before.
Does the HomeRun - black hot leg going thru the attic light stay hot even if the light is not turned on as the black hot leg goes down the path into the Single Pole Switch and again stay hot as it travels to the 3Way Switch?
Do Home Runs stay hot as they travel through switches from switch to switch even when the switches are turned off?
Also in a typical 1 gang Switch Box are 3 cables 12/2Wground & wirenuts too many to connect?
I ask because my elect inspect said he prefers separate lighting circuits verus mixed lighting and outlet circuits.
I've said it a few different ways to see if I can make my question clearer. Thanks.
