Wiring for the future....

Hi,

I've been working on finishing my basement, studded out walls, electrical, conduit for cabling, etc. I'm at the point where I'll start drywalling shortly and have a question.

I a couple of years I hope to add an addition to the side of the house, it will be a family/dining room. It's still very much in the thinking phase, who knows, it may never occur. However I'm hopeful it will. While the walls in my basement are not yet up, would it be a good time to run wiring to a common point where the addition will be? If so, how should it be terminated, in a box?

Thanks,
Bob

How many square feet would you guess this addition would be?

Trying to prepare for something so vague is pretty hit and miss. There's a chance that this preparation will save you a lot of money. There's a chance that all this preparation effort will be wasted. And there's a chance that it will be useful, but could have been easily done later anyway.

John, the addition will probably add around 300 sq. ft., but like you say, it could be different. Perhaps I'll wait, where I want to build is on the same wall where the service is coming in....

Thanks!
Bob
