Mounting TV on Stucco/drywall combo
Bear with me, this may sound strange. I began the somewhat "easy" task of mounting my LCD TV to my wall to find some interesting information.
The room this is in was an addition at some point, where the wall I want to mount the TV on is against what used to be an exterior wall. Thinking that whoever did the addition, ripped out the old stucco, then added drywall to the new addition side, I went on the hunt for studs. Only to find that it appears the 5/8" drywall was layed on top of the previous exterior wall.
I still want to mount my TV there, but I don't know the best option. I could use masonry anchors to anchor to the stucco. Or I could use LONG lag bolts to hit the other wall's interior studs, which seem to be begin about 3 1/2" deep from the wall I am mounting the TV on.
I'm just stumped on what to do. Its obvious now as well, that running wires through the wall is not an option.
