1) Running Romex Horizontally 2) Studs layed flat
Is there any height requirement running romex horizontally between studs? Is any height "OK"?
Also, I have one wall with the 2x4 installed horizontally along a concrete block wall (to save space). On this wall, there is about 1/2" of space between the stud and the wall. I want to run wires along this wall..in lieu of drilling the layed flat stud on its 1-1/2" surface, can I run the wire between the stud and the wall. I thought may be I can use a wire tie around the romex that has the screw anchoring hole on them which I could attach to the stud? Is this OK. If this is not code compliant, what else could be used.
