How to install an on/off switch to electrical outlet without going through wall?
Asked Nov 24, 2010, 07:50 AM
This is an older house with no overhead light in the livingroom. It is required that there be an on/off switch by the front door that controls an outlet where a lamp can be plugged in. There is an existing on/off switch by the door for the porch light and an electrical outlet close to it. It will be nearly impossible to thread wires from the basement up because these are plaster walls, not drywall. What can I do?
