Sawing the back off the junction box is “hack “ and will not meet code. You can get shallow boxes but you can’t fit much in them.

Good dimmers won't fit and if one unused knock-out is missing without a wire our inspector fails us. Lot's of house fires are caused by uncontained sparks.

not a junction
single switch
sawed to fit clear a slider

romex through a hole I drilled in what was left of it
staple of course

and its always the end of a line so theres no connect side those screws you've got your wire wrapped 80% around...

something like that

always seemed reasonable

xCon,

You will have a long career that includes respect from your clients and fellow builders if you behave ethically and learn how to say no.

Not sure this guys jobs are getting inspected. Might as well use low voltage rings or better yet just cut the drywall just big enough to fit the switch and just screw it to the drywall with some really long screws all savage like :)

I have a wood floor only devoted business. Old school sand and finish solid wood flooring is the specialty. I also do anything regarding wood floor systems. Done some very famous peeps houses etc.. Learned historic aspects in Philadelphia area, moved to JAckson Wyo and we know about the $$$$ there.

So this is a wood floor product have been working with the mill to get off the ground. Amazing stock they get. White oak very long length. Not quartersawn but close ! Really glad to have this arrow in my quiver. On 3rd project with this floor . Basic , but one of the nicest floors. Done inlays etc....but I'm a sucker for simple elegant …….

Just curious.
