    Hi there,

    Wonder if anyone could help. I recently had my garage converted. Builder has tried to box in my consumer unit with a view to putting a door on the front. Looks really messy and there is no way a door will sit flush on it. Can anyone advise of what I cold do with this to make it nice and neat. The cables from the consumer unit are in plastic conduit. Also, Could I use expanding foam in here to stop the draft from coming from behind the plasterboard?

    Please see attached photos.

    Appreciate any feedback at all.

    Take that framing off and get a joiner to do it properly.
