Installing an Outdoor GFCI Receptacle

Weatherproof GFCI Outlet Box: I am installing a GFCI receptacle on the outside of my home, the receptacle box cannot be recessed.


Electrical Wiring for a GFCI
Electrical Question: I am installing a GFCI receptacle on the outside of my home. The house is solid stone so the receptacle box cannot be recessed into the home. Is there a complete weatherproof GFCI box to house the GFCI receptacle made to surface mount on the wall?

Also with this the wire will be coming from out the corner of a basement window exposed for about 6-12″ to the GFCI receptacle. Since it will be exposed, can I still use NM Romex wire (14-2 for a 20 amp) with a metal conduit to protect the wire?

Thank you.
