I would like to hang a particular heavy duty hose reel on a wall that will be patched with stucco. In other words, it's sheathing and studs right now.
I could wait until after the stucco is on, drill holes overly large, caulk, and insert a screw. But can I do better? Is there some form of stud that could be placed in the stucco or on the wall, that offers less risk of long term water barrier failure?
