Ok, after searching the internet, I cannot find a clear answer. I am trying to install a new lighting fixture near my basement door. Most everything I found on the net was about installing underground wires or they did not include details on the one part I do not quite understand.
HD has a pretty good little kit that includes the light and junction box. I have no problem stripping wire, using wire nuts or working with electricity.
OK, Here is where I am sketchy. I drill a hole through the brick and cinder block. What type of wire do i need to run through it? That wire will go to the junction box (which the light will mount too) Now, what do I need to put where the wire comes into the box in order to seal it? I plan on putting another junction box in the basement upstream of a nearby outlet to provide power to the light (same question here, how to "seal" the wires coming into the box?) After every thing is mounted, wired, and tested, I plan on filling the remainder of the drilled hole with Great Stuff.
Sorry for rambling, but basically my questions are what type to wire do I need and how do I seal the wire doing into the box? Thanks.
Oh, one more, does the ground coming into the light's box get attached to the inside of the box anywhere?
