Type of wall box to use


I have two rooms divided by a standard wall 2x4 construction with 1/2" sheetrock. How do I go about installing and outlet in the same spot of both walls. If I described that right. I guess back to back. Is there a certain wall box to use or do I need two separate boxes?

I'm not aware of a "single" box that could be used in your situation. Not enough depth to go back-to-back. I would immagine one would hug the inside of one stud while the other on the opposing inner stud of the same cavity. Hope I'm describing this correctly.

Back to back will be a problem. You'll need to offset them ever so slightly unless you can get away with a pair of shallow boxes (watch your box fill numbers).

Thanks that makes sense. Probably why I didn't that see a box like that on the sites I've been looking at. Thanks
