Changing wiremold (surface wiring) into recessed wiring/outlets
We removed our plaster wall that was directly on the exterior brick. We are installing 3/4" furring strips today. We will have 1/2" insulation (unfortunately, our room is way too small to use anything else).
The previous owners installed surface wiring on the plaster wall to create two outlets. The highest one has the outdoor light directly behind it. The second outlet is located about 2' directly below the first outlet. We would LOVE to have the wires in the wall cavity and the outlets flush with the new drywall.
Our general contractor said this would be difficult due to issues with insulating the wires. He is a friend and has helped us a lot along the way. I'm thinking maybe he drawing the line on this particular job. :) I want to find out if this is a DIY job for my husband and me. A search on the internet hasn't pulled up anything! Maybe I don't know the common "key words" or terms?
Any advice or links would be great!
I also couldn't find info on this forum. Sorry if I missed it!!!!
