August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #167: Add an outlet

Tip of the Week

You can add an outlet without tearing up the sheetrock. Carefully remove the base trim from the bottom of the wall. From an existing outlet, cut the sheetrock behind the base to the new location. Pull Romex from the old outlet, inside the wall, to the cut out. Run along the cutout to the new location and up the stud cavity. Install an old work box and outlet. Replace the base and you´ve done a professional job.
