How do I install an electric range on an exterior wall of my home? The kitchen was prepped for a gas stove before and now I have purchased an electric range to replace it. With the range being on an exterior wall I can't drill up directly through the basement to get to the wall for the receptacle. Is it ok to just mount the receptacle on the wall and run the 220V line down through the floor on the outside of the wall? Not sure if this this still up to code.

My follow up question is how to hook up the wire into the breaker box. The breaker I need for the box is a 50amp correct? Probably shouldn't be asking these questions if I plan on doing it myself, maybe should get somebody to do it for me....

Thanks for your help.
