I'm moving our electrical meter/panel, and burying the service.
The new combo-box is semi-flush. UG conduit will be in the stud cavity.
Slab foundation. 16" OC studs. Exterior is stucco. Interior is open. (Wall
is an exterior garage wall.)
I'm going to cut a hole in the stucco, and mount the panel to the studs. The
bottom plate in that stud space will be removed, and the foundation
Since there is no longer a bottom plate, do I need to add additional
framing? For example, if this were a door, I'd obviously put king studs, a
header, and cripples. But, is the same thing done in this situation?
