The next step was to run the wiring in the garage. The phone line enters the garage near the front so I split it into two runs to connect to the two phones that will be installed in the garage. The first phone is located at the man door entrance to the garage. I mounted the phone and ran a RJ11 line to the ceiling where I created a simple bracket to hold a in-wall phone jack that I used to connect the RJ11 cable to a DSL line filter to the phone jack to the cable that then runs into the house. The second telephone was installed at the top of the stairs on the second floor. The line was also ran along the ceiling then through the framework so that the staircase walls could someday be finished. That line runs through the wall to another in-wall phone jack and DSL line filter to the second phone. I then connected the line from the garage to the house phone and everything worked as it should. The two days of work was totally worth it knowing that I got to finally assemble something that was 30 years in the making. Happy Father's Day, Dad!
