Installing Electrical Boxes in a “Bonfig” Wall
Hello. I have been researching alternative and more cost effective method of getting a higher wall r-value as most of the builders in my area, piedmont of NC, are not too willing to take on adding rigid foam and furring strips to the exterior of the house. I came accross the Bonfig articles on GBA and read his writeup in findhome building and i really like the idea, as i could probably do this myself. I am not a builder or framer, just a home owner, but i have worked in residential construction earlier in my life and feel comfortable doing this. TO make a short question long, how are electrical outlet and light switch boxes attached to the studs after the bonfig strips are added. PS, not sure if that’s what they are called, but they should be because it sounds awesome.
