Hey all,

I'm definitely an electrical noob, but I am definitely willing to learn all I can. My father-in-law built his family's home, so he is very experienced in basically any question I could have, but we currently live about 7 hours away now...so having his help is not really an option.

Having said that, my question is regarding conduit and drywall. We are looking to finish a space in our basement that would become a closet for a guest room down there, but there is existing conduit & a ceiling light fixture as well. Are we going to have to re-do the entire thing in terms of the conduit? or can we drywall over it and extend the switch/box so it is flush with the drywall?

I attached a picture as well. (I realize its currently a mess)



thanks!
