    Default Electrical cable routing

    Two questions:

    1) would the practically 90 degree bends be considered "excessive"?

    2) would you be concerned about the decking adjacent to the cables. I was thinking if there was structural movement the cables could be pinched by the decking, or am I overthinking again. Note: The decking is locked into place (nailed down), and is within 6ft of the attic access opening.

    I would not be concerned..
