Hi, as now allowed to run behind covings (safe zone) find out which way joists run, 'fish' from light point to wall then wire room, if sw. drops in conduit cut at cove depth with careful use of sharp chisel/hammer or use small angle grinder when conduit located, or may have to chase down wall to sw. loop on to next room etc, then u just have to convince L.L. he needs new coving every where,B.W.
