I have a single gang in wall outlet in my basement. I would like to adapt it into surface mount EMT conduit to get an outlet at a different location. Ideally I would be able to keep a plug at the current location, but its not critical.
Once site I found online said to remove the old in-wall box, patch the drywall, and install a new surface mount box.
Is there a simpler way, possibly by installing a face plate or new box on top of the existing box?
