    Default Wiring a Ceiling Fan mounted on Concrete

    I mounted the fan on the Flexcore concrete ceiling, I have wire channel that will run to the wall, and I don't want to run down the wall to a socket at the floor. Rather, I want to run to a socket on the otherside of the wall in the bathroom. My problem is getting from the ceiling, through the molding into the wall and across a stud to the socket. The only thing I can think of is to cut two holes in the opposite drywall. One at the top that would allow me to pull the conduit/wire down through the top plate, and the other across the stud to the socket. Once the drywall is opened, a through stud hole is drilled to get the wire to the back of the socket box. Connect the wiring and patch the drywall.
    Am I on the right track or is there a better way?

    If you want to get your wire across the wall to the bathroom, do as you describe. There is no better way to do it.
