how to wire this?


I have a storage type shed in my basement underneath the basement stairs and need to run a 14-2 wire to a switch..well the walls are not studded (in the shed) so i cant run wires within them...could i just mount a metal j-box on top of the storage shed and run armored cable to it or am i gonna have to run metal conduit?
