Install Electrical in brick

1197 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Rochsolid
I'm not new to electrical however I've never done what I'm trying to do. In our newly renovated basement I want to put an accent wall of full size brick. How do I install the outlets and switches if I don't want anything surface mounted? I am a very visual kind of guy so if you have some web sites or pictures I would appreciate it.

Thanks All ahead of time!

Use masonry boxes for your receptacles and switches. Run your conduit in your brick up to the too of your wall. Will there be a dropped ceiling?

I am thinking I'll run the cavle through the stud wall to the box, with an extender to make the 3 inch wide brick. I am putting a drop ceiling on one side and drywall on the other.

Thanks everyone..

If you use conduit, run it inside the brick and to a 90degree bend at the top of your wall so your EMT stub ends up in your dropped ceiling side
