Moving Light Switches
I had to move three switches to a new location. The guys doing the work ran the electrical wires from the old switch location to the new location by going horizontally through the studs. At the old switch location the installed a metal box, spliced the cables inside and drywalled over it.
From what I understand now it is not code to drywall over a spliced location. Are there any exceptions?
Would you guys leave it as is or would you recommend I cut off the wire at the attic location, add a junction box in the attic and re-run the wires to the new switch location through the wall? I would have to leave the old disconnected wire and box buried in the wall.
