Electrical Wiring in Double-Stud Wall
I am building a passive house with double stud walls. 2×6 for exterior and 2×4 interior with a 1.5″ offset gap between the studs. I intend to put the plumbing and electrical in the 1.5″ gap between the studs, no hole drilling.
Can I have wires lay on the floor in the gap between studs rather than hang them higher up the wall? I would hang the plumbing and just lay the wires down on the floor level without hangers. My fear is this may be a code violation.
