I have a new home with an unfinished basement. A drywaller came and
installed steel studs so that he could put drywall up, as requested, and
then didn't come back. I am looking to finish the basement myself now, and
must say I hate steel studs! Anyway, I was wondering about electrical - how
do you take care of grounding, installing receptacles, etc. with these
things? Do you use a metal box for outlets and switches?
there are various accessory clips for attaching ordinary steel boxes to
and an electrical supply outfit will probably carry an assortment of boxes
with clips already installed.
I prefer metal studs, actually. No warping, firmer wall structure.
