Hello everyone. My mother has just ordered a new kitchen, and the new kitchen has a 50mm upstand at the back of worktop.
The existing sockets are original from when the kitchen was built in the 90s and are in a poor position anyway for moulded plugs as you can see.
There are 4 sockets on this part of the kitchen ring which need lifting as well as a 2G 20ADP isolator on a separate radial for the oven and extractor hood but they will stay in roughly the same position as they are now.
All the wiring is T&E and comes up from under the suspended timber floor and is buried direct in solid plaster on blockwork.
Ideally the plan is to have all the electrics at least first fixed before the kitchen fitter starts his work so it doesn’t delay him and also to keep the power on as much as possible to keep the appliances functioning before / during the kitchen fit.
I have an idea as to how I would do it but I thought it would be good to get suggestions from here incase I’m overlooking an easier or better way of doing the job.
The tiling is all coming off and the plasterwork will be patched as needed.
