Adding a telephone extension line
I need help with adding a telephone extension. Not another "line" just an extension so that we have a phone in the basement. I am in an older home and unfortunately the previous owners did alot of things willy nilly. I cannot find a junction box to tap into, however, I did find a splice in the phone line that just hangs in the basement ceiling. That added line (which is just twisted and taped together as if it were electrical line), goes to the garage. Can't I just get a junction box to properly attach these wires then add the new line using that new box? (The line that the garage phone line is spliced into is the main line coming from the box outside). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
