comment How do I attach a receptacle box to brick instead of a stud?
yes, i understand. I was just going to shove a shim in there to make it all line up right.

comment How do I attach a receptacle box to brick instead of a stud?
yes to all of those questions. But the studs are rather narrow, so the box itself is almost flush with the plaster (outer surface) when it is in the wall.

comment Can I use old abandoned iron pipe as electrical conduit?
It is black iron pipe. I would say about 1/2 inch inner diameter. The outside of the pipe is in good condition (still black, no rust). I am not so sure about the interior.

comment Do I have to staple romex to the studs behind the wall?
yeah, I've dropped a weighted string from top to bottom in several places with zero obstruction so I am pretty sure that the wall is completely empty.
