Question about Electrical Supplies
I installed new outlets on switches in a new condo. All of the house works fine except for one outlet in the hallway, lights above the stove, and the garage. (When trying to turn on the breaker it flips) I need to know how to find the short as everything worked before. Is something not tight enough? Wire in something wrong?

on the back of your garage door opener there is a colored learn button--press and release-the learn indicator light will glow for a short time usually 30 seconds. within thirty seconds press and hold the buton on the hand held remote that you wish to operate your garage door. release the button when the motor unit lights blink. if you don;t have a light, two clicks will be heard. it has learned the code. procedure will be different for multi function control.

A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.
You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.
If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.
Here is a link that may help you.

Well you have to make sure of three things with three way switches...where your power comes in, where your power goes out, and that your travelers are not mixed up. Lets talk about a normal three way circuit. Power comes in to your first switch. You attach your power wire to the common terminal, usually a different color than the other terminals. The other two are your travelers, if your switches work partially you probably have these mixed up. The color traveler you have on one switch terminal has to go on the exact terminal on the other switch. Also check that your neutral is not swapped with a traveler, this will cause your eyes not to light. In between switches there is most of the time three wire cable (2 travelers and a neutral---while two wire cable is used before the switches and after it going to the light). The power then goes out of the common terminal of your second switch. If all wiring is good, I would take your switches out and check them with a continuity tester to see if they are bad. Check continuity on each switch between the common and each traveler terminal.
