I'm currently laying wire for the recepticles around my basement. I'd like to run the 12/2 up the stud from the recepticle to about 4 ft above floor level then over horizontal to the next recepticle location. Every 4 feet drilling a hole through the stud and snaking the wire through for support. In between those holes snaking the wire behind the stud and between the insulation/exterior wall and stud. Any code issues with this? Should I run the wire higher/lower than 4ft horizontal? Am I required to have nail plates? It is easier than going up to ceiling, drilling through floor joists and coming down again every time. TIA!
