I plan on adding an outdoor receptacle for landscape lighting, holiday lighting, etc... and I just wanted to run down my plan before I get started, to see if anyone can correct or point out any mistakes before they happen.

I am going to tap into a non-GFCI receptacle in my finished basement, and run Romex up through the drywall, and out the wood siding.

I am going to place a plastic outlet box, the "remodel" kind, flush mounted in the wood siding, and run the cable through the box, hooked up to a GFCI receptacle.

I am going to cover the receptacle with an "in-use" plastic box.

Is this it?
thanks for any and all responses.

Not sure what you mean a remodel kind. You will need a weatherproof box and the rest of your plan will work!
Good Luck!
