Laws breach? No; grandfathered in. (Today’s programs demand receptacles within 4 feet of a doorway and every 12 foot thereafter.)
Risk degree: little, so long as you make use of industrial-grade extension cords, 14-gauge or fuller. (The thicker the line, the reduced the evaluate multitude.) Undersize electrical cords (16-gauge or more compact) can overheat and ignite a fire if tons are too weighty.
Answer: Add more stores. Anticipate paying a licensed electrician about one hundred dollars per first-floor shop and two fold that for second-floor function. (there will probably likely be a minimum fee.) This work demands reducing holes in areas and ceilings to snake the wiring. Some electricians will patch the pockets; others write the patching for your requirements.
