    Do you think anything will pour out of this pipe if I trim it back further?
    Comes out of what would of been the back of the house into the 90s kitchen extension.

    Skirting fouls new kitchen units doors at one end so was going to run a low profile wooden bead thing to cover flooring edge and paint the stone.

    Any favourite routes out of Bath? Looking for rides around 100km/1400m+ climbing.

    I’m keen to do a bit more exploring as the restrictions lift. Enjoyed my ride to Cheddar Gorge last weekend.

    Good idea about the spacers too.

    Thanks for all the help.

    That’s great to know, thanks. Did you have to run the cable before wall mounting? We’re Eyeing up a walnut/black run.

    To anyone with String shelving cabinets... If I were to put a tv/amp/speakers on top could I get cable behind or between wall supports down to a plug socket?

    Thanks for that!

    I plan to make a panelled headboard similar to the attached and would like to move the existing wall sockets from behind so they are mounted on the panelling.
    Does the below sound reasonable?
    Remove old socket, join length of cable with terminal blocks, run to dry liner pattress box on panelling (those ones that can tighten against a plaster wall), install new socket. Would like to avoid a surface mount box as have nice low profile sockets.

    If it’s more involved I’ll get an electrician. 6 weeks wait though round here.

    Had a similar challenge here though we could vent through the roof outside. Bought an integrated hood that had a small front to back measurement so wasn’t in your face then built a carcass around it. Slides off for access. Would get a full width extractor if we did it again though.
