I'd like to move an outlet that is in a wall between a finished spaced and an unfinished space. Right now my TV is hanging on a wall and connected to an outlet that is too high for my tastes. I'd like to move it down maybe 18-24". I know that I could put in a junction box to extend the wires down, but from what I've read you can't have a junction box buried in a wall. I could put a blank template on the existing outlet, but that'd just be ugly.
Since the current box is in a half finished wall (i.e. it's in a wall with a workshop on one side that's not finished), is there a way that I can extend the power cables and drywall off the old hole?
My guess would be that I could take out the old box and put in a junction box, but instead of the "facing" towards the finished space, I could just put the access panel part toward the unfinished space.
