Hi everbody. I'm installing electrical boxes in my unfinished garage. If I'm correct I need the box to be 1/2" past the 2x4 in order to be flush with 1/2" drywall. My question is if my measurements are right I can cut a board 1 and 11/16" wide to set behind the boxes as I nail them into the stud that way they're perfectly level and sticking out just the right amount. Does this sound like a reasonable thing to do or is there another trick you all use. Please steer me in the right direction.
Thanks for any help you all can give!
