Hello all,
I'm planning on renovating the laundry room in my house into a basement bathroom. For the washing machine, I hope to install a washing machine outlet box such as this one:
http://m.homedepot.com/p/Oatey-Quadtro-2-in-Copper-Sweat-Washing-Machine-Outlet-Box-38529/205062252

The problem I'm encountering is that all of the finished walls in my basement are 2x3 and these outlet boxes are all constructed for 2x4 walls with a depth of at least 3.5 in. Any suggestions on how I could make this work? Or does anyone know of a washing machine outlet box compatible with 2x3 walls? I really don't want to build out the wall just for the outlet box. I thought about just making a clam casing frame around the outlet box to give it another 1/2 on top of 1/2 drywall, but I don't think this will leave enough room for the 2 inch drain pipe centered in the outlet box.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
JC
