Hi all, Figured the DIY area was best for this. I completed my electrical qualifications last year but as I've found a new job I like while doing them I've not gone professional so have little real world experience. Bought our first house at the beginning of the year and quickly found out the previous owner has done a lot of DIY electrical work. To say it's dangerous is an understatement (wrong size cables, runs under carpets compete with live cable not even terminated, spurs off spurs. It's a complete shitstorm) so I've started pulling it out room by room and replacing it all. I'm working in the living room atm and we've had the fireplace ripped out with the idea of turning the chimney breast into a kind of entertainment centre. I want to install two double sockets in the back of the fireplace opening to power everything (we're plastering it all and adding shelves) but I've no idea about the best wiring run to power them. I was thinking about just chasing around the side and across the front into the opening (at same height as other sockets in the room) but not completely clear if I can do this in the regs? My other option is the shortest run by drilling through the side of the chimney breast where my wall chase meets the corner. Problem is, if I do this, I'll be drilling uncomfortably close to the gas pipe (gas is properly capped off but the pipe is still charged) and I don't think I'll be able to get my drill close enough to the wall to avoid a tight "in and out" bend in the wire. Could get myself a flexi bit if this will help but wanted to ask peoples opinion on if this is the best option first? Any help/advice appreciated as I'm completely stuck for the best way to continue with this!
