Were in the process of pulling out the old electrical boxes and were going to move them to the new wall. I have removed this one and here?s the wire hanging here I did shut the power off before I got started in this and they are all these wires are stapled to the studs so as we go up I have got to pop the staples out so I can pull the wire back up through the plates in to the attic and come down through in to my new wall. While I am in the process of removing the electric boxes and the wire so we can move these over to our new wall and re run the wire down into the new wall and these will become out power for the washing machine and the power for over the sink and actually what I am doing is just removing this because I am going to use this some place else we wont need it on this wall anymore. I won?t have to any junctioning in the attic because these wires are the plugs are all the way over here and I am going to be going back towards the panel so I have got plenty of wires. I will end up having to cut some of this wire off when I run it down the new wall. So we won?t have to make a junction in the attic.
