    Thanks for the tips guys. Today was largely unsuccessful but I will try to tackle the fireblock
    tomorrow. The other issue I had is that the second wall I tried to wire had a bathtub on the
    other side ...

    So I have run into the dreaded but necessary obstacle that people seem to face when running
    wires - a fireblock. Question is would I need to caulk the hole up if I drilled through it? I
    have a pretty ...

    Small update...so far so good. Dropped cables to two additional rooms on 2nd floor using
    techniques discussed here. Will have to drill new holes for additional cables for one more
    room. Also will have...

    I ended up drilling an angled hole under the subfloor and into the base plate to avoid drilling
    through the I-joist. I think I was fortunate to get the right angle using a spade bit. I'm not
    sure if I...

    Ok, so would I be able to do the same thing done at the top of the joistswith the existing
    wires to get the new wires through? It seems my other option would be to drill holes in the
    bottom plate off ...

    Yes, it is sitting on a double top plate. Of course, the double top plate is precut (or I guess
    "notched" is the better word) as well in order for the exiting wire to continue its route.

    I saw this document which seems to suggest that this approach to cutting in I-joists should not
    have been taken on page 7.

    I tried the long bit and hope approach. That didn't work. :( I went ahead and broke out the
    circular saw and opened up the subfloor. My wife is seething right now.At any rate, I found out
    why the long...

    That's cool. That's the part I likely will need the most help with. :) I've cut the bottom of a
    wall open on the second floor and am able to access the bottom plate. I can see the route the
    wires are ...

    I am pretty dedicated to this method to run the wire as I need to run wire to places on the
    first and second floor. I have also purchased a good bit of resources for it already. It seems
    if I don't do...
