I had to pull a 4' high and long section of drywall out of my garage due to a ton of damage in various places.

While that's off, I'm planning to lower the electrical boxes along that wall about 3 feet. I'm just going to drill new holes through the studs and run it like brand new electrical basically.

The trouble is, these walls are already completed in the sense that there's batt insulation existing and stapled into place.

I'm wondering if there's an easy way to work around the insulation to drill the holes for the new electrical, staple them to the wall running down into the new boxes (and install the new boxes for that matter).

Or am I better off just removing sections of insulation across the new area, running all the wire and installing boxes, then patching insulation in those areas?
