Question Running wiring through horse hair plaster walls

Hi Folks,

I am upgrading the wiring in a 125 year old house with horse hair plaster walls. There is still a lot of knob and tune wiring which has to be replaced. I am hiring an electrition to do the wiring, but am hoping to save some money by running all or some of the cable myself. Now, the house is a 3 storey brownstone, and I while be running wires on all floors. I think I can do the top floor from the attic, and the main floor from the basement. Ny main problem is how to tackle the second floor. Any hints on how to do this? Or should I just fork out the extra bucks and have the electrican to all the work.

Hi Folks,

I should also mention that I will be running cables through both interior and exterior walls.


Oh, and sorry 'bout all the typos in the previous post. Sometimes my fingers get ahead of my brain :-)
