Options of a box

There are a couple of methods of connecting a receptacle on the outside of your home.

One is to cut a regular jucnction box into the interior of the wall and only expose the box opening to the outside. Then, after you add a ground fault circuit interrupter outlet, cover the outlet with a gasket and a cover plate to seal the connection to the wall.

Another method is to attach a weatherproof box to the wall using the mounting brackets provided within the box and a couple of screws to attach it firmly to the wall. These mounts are external, so there are no holes in the interior of the box. This eliminates the possibility of moisture getting into the box.

That's all, hope these tips can help you to find a right outdoor junction box.
