Doing a rewire..

CU Under stairs.. wires run diaganally across and up under bathroom floor at the moment.. dont want to go that way so..

How would you go about running across the cupboard floor under the stairs...

Imagine looking into a cupboar under the stairs.. stairs run from your left to your right above you.. wall is 2ft away from door..

So want to run from the wall in front (where cu is) down and across the floor and then into the space under floor boards in hall way..

Can I / Do I fit (3x2 as joists and cover with Caberfloor (T&G Loft flooring)??

Or do I try and take an sds max / kango / 9" grinder and fit some ducting?

Are there any regs applying to running cables in concrete internally or ducting / depths etc.

Ideas / Suggestions welcome

can't see any problem with fitting a false floor on wooden batterns as long as the joists are sturdy enough and you use proper floorboards

And the robbed height doesn't mean that you decapitate yourself every time you go in......
