    Default Outdoor lights and outlet before or after stucco

    I'm wiring a new addition. I've started roughing in my interior wall electrical and I also have one outdoor outlet and 2 outdoor light fixtures. Only the plywood sheathing is up and the stucco guy doesn't come until next week. Should I attach/brace boxes for the outlet and light fixtures before the stucco or should I wait until the stucco has cured and carefully drill out what I need.

    Go ahead and attach a wall box. Make sure you set it out flush to the new stucco which should be 1 inch. The stucco guy should then caulk around the box before his first coat. Stuff some paper in the box so the stucco doesn't get in too much.
    Good luck
