Hi
Have a lounge with 2 lights with one switch, need to make it one switch for each light, as there is a bit f a loft conversion, can't get at any junction boxes, wherever they may be that is, would it be accepted to try and run some cables along the ceiling ( cutting into it ), if I did that way, I would need to drill a hole in each ceiling joist, so I guess that way is out of the question, would be replacing plaster boards that way.
Can't think of another way to do it, I know I will have to chase another cable down the wall.

cheers
Spike

I think you've answered most of your own questions - in simple terms, to do what you want to do, it is a nightmare.

Have you considered wireless remote switches.

The technology has improved, and you can even have the switches to match many modern brands.
