Light on his driveway. We received no compensation for the mention of, or appearance of products or companies in this video Brian got a great deal on some led porch lights. That would replace the incandescent fixtures on his front. Porch and his one driveway light, but he needed more light, so he asked me to install an additional light on the other side of the garage doors. There was no electric junction box there and also there was no wiring. So this is just one way to accomplish this. I started by drilling a hole through the stucco at the center of where the new box would go and through the plywood on the inside on the inside, I had full access, and so I used a three and a half inch hole saw to cut the hole In the plywood, as specified out by the instructions for the junction box nowhere, I'm going to point out that what they tell you at the home store is not always correct.
They told me that I could use this same. Hole saw to cut through the stucco as well wrong. It dulled the brand-new saw in the first eighth of an inch. So I went with my backup plan to just drill a bunch of holes with a masonry bit then hammer the section out this required. A few extra hits here and there to get the final size right, but it worked out well. After I got the box in place. I put the screws through the mounting holes and went on the inside to attach the bracket. Since the wall is over an inch thick, I had to cut off some of the tabs to make the bracket fit. I just used tin snips to do this.
This box is designed for ceilings, but since the wall is solid, it worked out well. Once the bracket was in place where the screws started. I went outside and started screwing them tight but of course one screw sucked off, but that was easy to fix because the other one was holding the bracket in place. This is where I could have used a helper to hold things. Then I just push the romex wire through the retaining opening in the box and went outside to connect up the light with the wire in place. I attach the bracket that came with the light.
This bracket allows you to attach the light fixture to wall boxes that are not squared to the edge of the wall. Once it is attached to the box, I just used the level to align the movable part of the bracket, then tighten it down in this case. Bracket wouldn't hold solid, but some sealant around the outside of the fixture after it's installed will prevent it from twisting. Next. I cut away the cover of the romex over the wires and attach the ground wire to the provided ground screw on the bracket. The bracket allows for different thicknesses of light fixtures, so these screws can also be adjusted to the correct length then secured with the lock nuts.
