New Construction: wire exiting wall, no box?


When you're doing rough-in wiring for the dishwasher and garbage disposal that will be direct wired, how do you leave the cable for the drywallers? Do you just attach it to a stud with a bit hanging out and rest curled up in the wall cavity? Thanks...

I usually tack a staple loosely to the plate so this way the hacks, um I mean drywallers dont move it around on me.

I put it in a box.

When it comes time for final installation, make a "whip" out of flexible conduit of your choice. Attach one end to the appliance and the other to one of those blank plates with a center knockout, using appropriate clamps/connectors.

I never use direct wiring for a garbage disposer. A power cord installation is much cleaner under the sink and makes servicing a snap

Do NOT curl it up int he wall cavity, the drywallers will go right over it. Staple it as close to the face of the stud as possible in the position you want it to exit the drywall, then loosely curl it up with it sticking into the room so that the drywallers know where it comes out and can uncoil it and pull it thru a hole in the drywall as they install it.
