Cut an inspection hole

Greetings Tim,

A stud finder would be useless if you have strapping!

What style house is this? Your basic cape or ranch will most likely run front to back.

If I were you, I would cut a hole in a closet ceiling and check!

I would locate all wires and pipes before I started, as well.

NOTE, When I did this job I found a wire that had been cut and left between the walls, IT WAS HOT! (buy a wire tester to make sure you have the right breaker).

Good luck,
