    Then the simple answer to your question is yes. You can engineer it so it works. The main design consideration is access for maintenance.

    I've seen cisterns mounted on the inside face of the boxing. Some of the modern ones are very compact and light empty. Outcomes are bad if overflows happen but a modern cistern should overflow into the toilet quite reliably which means most householders will notice.

    The wall hung equipment is great, not really for the older houses but you can fit/remove a toilet so easily because it's been engineered to work. You would end up giving up around 50mm more than normal concealed to accommodate the frame standing in front of the soil pipe. If you want wall mounted it's the only way.

    When you custom mount one you just need to have a method to push the feed to the pan into the connector at the back (i.e. try to design it so you can reach with your hand). Use a long flexi soil connector so you can check it's fixed it to the pan then push it back to the wall.

    I've hardly had the camera out this year but really enjoyed it a few weeks ago.

    I've downloaded this to take a closer look. Really strange how the shape of the beach kind of ruins it and makes it so interesting.

    It's a classic with bikers. Pop down the shops for 20 bensons, quick tour of Europe and home :)

    Most of my early riding experience was going to get parts from breakers yards.

    Need a part, go to breakers, get part, come home, fit part, test ride, something breaks. Repeat....

    You need to carefully match the dimmer to the lamp or lamps. Some dimmers just won't dim below 10w, that's less than most single LED bulbs. I carry the linked ones because they cover most of these situations. People struggle to program them but it's timing the on off and recognising they have entered the programming mode.

    In fairness a lot of the procedures look worse written down but you would struggle to work them out without a manual.
