Is there anything different about adding an outlet to an exterior wall?
I've added several ethernet jacks to interior walls (drywall) using low-voltage rings & keystone plates, but never on an OUTSIDE wall. I'm familiar with the techniques discussed here:
- How do I run ethernet, speaker wire, and coax through a wall into a crawlspace?
- Ethernet Cable Through Floor
Should I be worried that the bottom plate of my wall is inaccessible from the open basement, due to the rim joist?
The following diagram (cleaned up from ornl.gov) seems to show that I might have a drill path (red) to add a outlet plate (green arrow).
Is the best way to drill UPWARDS at the red arrow after finding the location by drilling DOWNWARDS at the blue arrow? Or what's the best way?
