I moved into a house I’m renting a few months back. I’m allowed to drill holes in the walls so long as I cover them before I move out...
So I’ve marked the studs, I drill, and there’s nothing behind the drywall. I’m no expert, but I’m a little confused as to how I’ve found a stud and there’s no stud. Could the drywall be extended?
In case you’re thinking I’m stupid (though I’m not saying I’m not! Haha), here’s a little more explaination of what I’ve done:
- Found stud with Franklin Sensors Prosensor 710
- Confirmed by sound (knocking on wall) after drilling and not finding a stud
- Confirmed with magnetic stud finder
- Still confused, used a piece of wire to check depth - there’s something in the way of the wire 4 and 1/4 inch deep, nothing in the way left or right of where the stud apparently is.
I don’t want to go cutting huge holes in the wall to figure out what’s behind them unless I have to. Could the drywall be extended out for some reason? These are the walls around the foundation of the basement.
