    Flush Gas Meter Box Fitted to Single Brick Wall

    Thanks guys. The back of the box will be covered by studwork/insulation/plasterboard/plaster/paint :) so that is not an issue. The meter will be less than 2 metres from the front of the property.

    Flush Gas Meter Box Fitted to Single Brick Wall

    Just wanted to know if this can be done. I need to move my gas meter as I'm doing a garage conversion. I was going to stick a semi-concealed box on the front of the house but having looked at one I don't like it. So the option is to stick a flush gas meter box on the side of the garage but this...

    Need thinner insulation boards, but can it be done.

    Thanks for the suggestion, losing 35mm is better than losing 75mm. Sorry not sure what you mean by this.

    Need thinner insulation boards, but can it be done.

    Currently doing a garage conversion on a house that I recently bought. Using Celotex with a thickness of 75mm for the floor and walls won't be a problem. However have had the building regs round today and they are stating that for the roof we need to have a 50mm ventilation gap and then 125mm...
