I have an electrical outlet powered by a cable that does through a stud. This is currently the first outlet in the series
I'm adding another outlet on a nearby wall that is perpendicular to the first and behind the stud. I think this will be the new outlet in the series
I've attempted a diagram to show this. I hope it makes sense
XXis the stud
-----are the existing cable
=is the new outlet
"is the existing outlet
form the walls.
[ ] =[ ] [ ] [ ---XX--- ] "
- Can I drill through the the stud at the existing point to create either a 3 way or 4 way hole so I can run the cable through to the new outlet?
- Will this cause any structural issues?
- If I cannot add a hole here, what's the best way for me to add the new outlet in?
