How to Add an Outlet?

Thanks Roch. However, I just discovered an outlet behind the wall in another rooml. Would that be okay to use? It would be really close by. Simply buy that romex wiring and cut some holes in the wall, and et cetera.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Whether you can use the receptacle on the other side of the wall would depend on the room and the purpose of the circuit. Some circuits cannot be shared.
