Relocating light switch


I demoed a non-load bearing wall that that had a lightswitch on it. I need to relocate it onto the exterior wall where it's coming out of. Looking at the attached pictures, I want to relocate it to the right between the studs. The stud the wire is coming out of is the last stud of the wall that was demoed, and it's part of an exterior wall. What are my options here? Can I simply cut out that stud, drill a hole through the stud next to it, and run the wire through there? The second picture shows how the point load is situated right above the studs in question, that's a roof rafter that's resting on it I believe.

Re: Relocating light switch


Indeed, I realized this was placed in the wrong subforum. Couldn't figure out how to delete it so if a mod could be so kind.
