I am looking to finish the attic/upstairs space that is currently unfinished, and turn it into a master bedroom. (sorry no pics) The only wiring up there right now is a single line running to the single light that lights the whole upstairs. I know I am going to run new 14-2 wire for all the new plugs, switches, etc... but here is my question. What do you guys suggest: I run 4 or 5 new lines from basement breaker box all the way up to the attic. (want to avoid this as it would be a lot of labor and wire to run but will do if necessary) or I run one 10 or 12 ga. line from the basement to a breaker box in the upstairs and tie all the lines back to that box. I realize I would need an access panel to the box which is fine, just not sure if its an accepted idea to have a second breaker panel. Just didn't know what others do or if there is an alternative to what I've thought of. Thanks all!!
