One of the beauties of it being an old house (maybe the only beauty lol) is that the wall cavities are completely hollow so i can put as many conduits as necessary. I just didn't want to run into any issues as far as bundling too many lines together. I hope this makes it a little easier to help with
    Good luck with the project !!!!
