I'm finishing my basement one room at a time. The first room is on the opposite end of the house as the panel. It would make things much easier for me if I could run the electrical home runs inside of my steel beam for the length of my house down to the panel. Is there a code-friendly and economical way to do this? Can I just use pvc conduit?
Also, the beam ends about 16' before you get to the panel. Assuming I could use pvc conduit, would I then have to run the cable through holes in the joists, or would I be OK to hang the conduit from the joists?
Thanks in advance!
