I am finishing my basement. I know usual we drill holes for wire/romax to go through the joists. I am reorganizing the wires to make them travelling along one side of the rooms. I don't want to drill so many holes or few big holes. I am planning to build a soffit along that side for those wires. Then I just attach the wires to the bottom of the joists inside the soffit. Is it ok? like showing on the attached picture.
