Here a receptacle is added to the circuit before the first switch. It is not controlled with the switches but is instead always hot. The source hot, neutral and ground are spliced to a 2-wire cable that runs to the new outlet. The 3 way switches and light are then wired in the usual way with the common on SW2 spliced to the source hot and the light hot wired to the common on SW1.
This receptacle can typically be found in living room and bedroom wall outlets. One of these may be controlled with a switch and/or wired to other receptacles in the circuit. For a 15 amp receptacle like this, 14/2 cable with ground should be used to feed the circuit.
The traveler wires are run using the other 2-wire cable between the lights and continue on to the traveler terminals on SW2. They don’t connect to the fixtures at all.
In order for a 4 way circuit to work, the 3 way switches must be wired properly at the the beginning and end of the path. So be sure that the common terminal on one of the 3 ways is wired to the hot source, and the common on the second 3 way is wired to the the hot terminal on the lights.
