exposed NM under sink
Hello!! Mike from Alaska here.
Picture for this question:
I am installing 120V hardwired undercabinet lights and two proper dedicated 20A small appliance circuits in my kitchen.
I have a log home. I am furring out the log kitchen wall with 2x2's in order to drywall it. As a result I have extremely low clearance for junction boxes.
I picked small metal handy boxes for the receptacles, as they fit back right to the log surface, and stick out to the perfect drywall finish height, so they are about the best I can do in the space.
I'd did not think I would have room to splice NM cable along within each box on to the next, so I decided only to run cable into each box and then right to the receptacle -- not out again.
So I put two 4x4 junction boxes on the log wall under the sink cab location, and i ran several NM cables out from each 4x4 box to the various receptacles and undercabinet light locations.
When i am done the NM will be secured along the profile of the wall surface, generally in the crotches of the logs as you can see.
Is this OK?
