How to move electrical boxes to the other side of the room?
you cannot move them as the wiring would be too short, but you can extend them by adding an afci receptacle for the one removed and adding a new wire to the location you need. Not forgetting an ESA inspection to approve the work has been done to code. Oh and don't forget only 12 devices per circuit, so turn off the power and count lights and receptacles, if it is over 12, you cannot add a new outlet on that circuit.
Thank you! But how do I extend the outlet to the desired location. See attached photo. There are multiple studs in the way.
no photo was attached, but cutting drywall and drilling new holes. possibly through the basement or attic.
Maybe best to call a few Licensed Electrical Contractors and ask for some quotes? Electrical codes are strict so if you are unsure, best to leave it to the pros, after all, an electrical fire in your home, where you and your family sleep, is not something to take lightly.
