    Hi all.

    I'll be completing on a new house which needs some pretty serious work doing to it, one job of which is to give us as much space on the shared drive as possible - the gas meter cover is a semi buried - is there any way to make that flush with the floor so we can reclaim the drive space (as small as it is, it's vital once we've taken the wall down) - I can't find a relevant product anywhere...

    Cheers!

    No, it's a semi concealed meter box and must stay like that.

    You could get the meter moved into an inset wall box if you want. But it will be costly. Ring your supplier for prices. I would think your looking at £500-£1000. Is it worth that much money for a tiny bit of space?? You decide!

    The supplier wont move that meter, You need to speak with your gas transporter.
