I removed a wall that had a light switch in it. I moved the switch to another wall in the room.
The wire that runs from the light to the switch wasn't long enough to reach the new switch's position. I bought a junction box, mounted it to a ceiling joist and spliced the wire in the box and hooked a new piece of wire onto it that was long enough to reach the swith.
The junction box is in the ceiling of a finished basement, and now I need to close up the hole in the dry walled ceiling where the junction box is. I've read that it is suppose to be easily accessible in order to comply with code, but I don't know what that means, can someone explain how I can make the box accessible without making it an eye sore?
I thought about wiring a somke alarm into the junction box as that would make it accessible, but I didn't know if that would be OK or not.
