    I decided to just use a different box. The wall is load-bearing, and it's not worth the risk just for an electrical box. It would have been nice to have the flexibility to adjust the depth, though.

    I asked the city about using a stud shoe if I were to tee off to the right on the existing pipe, since I'll be violating code if I notch the stud to accommodate the fitting. They were ok with it.
