Okay. I'm with you right up until you say "frame it out".
I need the stud bay to be open above and below the box, but I need studs on either side the mount the box. Should I put in a full stud adjacent to the 2x6, and then add another stud ~16" to the left of the new stud? If so, is there any way to do this without cutting the drywall from floor to ceiling?
Are the 2x4's on a partition wall essentially there to support the drywall? If I don't need to worry about supporting a structural load, I suppose I could cut the new studs in half and put the bottom in first and then the top. I'd have to glue them at the sill and top plate or maybe toenail a long countersunk screw and then I would just drywall screw the drywall to the new studs...
This was supposed to be the easy part.
