I am installing a sconce pancake box in a bedroom. The plan was to put the sconce over a stud with one of these.
All lined up and 4" hole cut, and then I realized I am working with 3/8 drywall (the pan box is 5/8).
I was curious if anyone has seen a fixture pan with a depth of 3/8" before; do they exist?
I am pretty sure that I could technically allow non-metallic boxes to stick out 1/4" on non-fire rated walls, but that's ugly; the spot I cut out is perfect so if it's possible to salvage, that would be optimal.
