There unfortunately is no hole for the light box, it is directly in front of the window frame studs. I'd have to carve out more drywall to the side of the light box to get any sort of drill bit in there.
Oh wait, I just read your post previous to this one about the bit extender. I did drill through the edges of the window frame studs a little bit to create an opening to wiggle the wire through. Are you suggesting I use the opening in the edge of the windows studs and fit an extended drill bit through it to drill through the horizontal stud below? This might require me to carve out more of the window studs, not sure how easy that will be but I'll consider it since it does seem less kludgy than the "channel" method.
But my question still stands, are there any codes I'd be violating if I did do the channel method? Or any dangers of patching the drywall directly on top of the wiring?
