How to Add an Outdoor Outlet

Choose and Mark the Outlet Location

  • To keep this project simple, place the new outlet in the same stud cavity as an existing indoor outlet.
  • Start by choosing the interior outlet you want to use.
    • Building codes prohibit tapping into circuits in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or into those dedicated to a large appliance, like a refrigerator. You can use living room, bedroom and basement circuits, but don’t tap into a circuit that’s already overloaded and trips the circuit breaker.
      • To place the outlet somewhere other than opposite the interior outlet, see “Running Cable From Other Power Sources” below.
