Electrical Cables in Box Room?
In the small box room in these houses, assuming the same standards are followed, does anyone know if there are any electrical cables running through the wall above the cupboard/drawers over the stairs?
Hi Marc, thanks for the quick response! i dont have a socket attached to the box, only one on the internal corner by the window. I want to put a wall mounted book case on this wall so just wanted to eliminate if theres any wires in there!
If I am understanding your question correctly you mean the actual wall part, rather than the slope- in which case no there should be no wires in the wall and no reason for there to be. The ring main on most BISF properties should be run under the floorboards, to then pop up to the upstairs rooms (and down to the lower rooms) so there is no reason for any cable to be running down the "wall" part which "hangs" over the stairs. The lighting then runs from the ceilings and then down respectively, so again unless you have a switch for some reason in this part of the wall, no cables should be there (you can identify this by tracing the cables in your loft).
Hope this helps
you've got it correct i just need to find a stud in there now to hang at least one side of the bookacse (and the actual bookcase)!
Plenty of them there to find! If not, toggle screws are your friend
thanks will have to get my rare-earth magnet and stud finder out!
