"Old Work" Box mounting nitpicking
I'm installing a 2 gang metal "old work" box in my remodel. Long story short - I had to tear out the wall surface (fiberboard) I'm going to replace it with drywall.
Do I have to leave it open for my rough-in inspection? Or do I just throw up the new drywall since technically I fished the wire before I tore the old stuff out (how's that for a PITA). If I should leave it open for inspection; how do I mount the "old work" box for the proper depth? Do I just bite the bullet and get a new work box with a bracket?
So, I am a can't see the forest for the trees kind of gal. But, I can't figure out how I want to go with this. And I can't stop obsessing about it.
Since you removed the finish, leave it open for your rough-in inspection. Staple the wire to the studs too.
Use a new work box with a bracket or try one of these
Available at electrical supply houses. Try ED near the Walmart.
Finally a really nice box
