Right now I have an extension cable going from my basement into my garage. I want to wire the end into a box instead of plugging it in. Also I want to put an outlet in the middle (in the garage) and the other end (also in the garage where the opener is plugged in).

While I realize this is not the optimal way to do it, I just don't have the money for flex.

Would this violate any codes in Wisconsin? I am not sure why it would, being that if you cut the ends off it's basically the same thing as flex, I just thought I would put it out there.

Thanks!
Evan

I heard WI is pretty loose with the code, so I can't think of a single Wisconsin code this would be in violation of.
