Since my builder didn't see fit to install medicine cabinets, I'm trying to remedy that, without punching too many holes in the drywall.
Unfortunately, there's an outlet wire snaking along a stud in the preferred location in one bathroom, so I can either surface mount the medicine cabinet or install a connector box (either in the attic or higher up the wall), route the wire down the other side of the stud and then bring it back through below the medicine cabinet.
I came up with a 3rd option but I'm not sure if it meets code. Would it be okay to cut a groove in the stud to recess the wire (say 1/2" x 1/2" x 20")?
Thanks for any advice,
