    Looking to start my bathroom renovation in a few weeks and looking for some advise.

    I am going to be chasing the hot and cold water pipes into the wall for our new shower unit, but rather than tiling/having a bare wall we are going to be using large panel tongue and groove cladding.

    I was wondering if there would be any issues with leaving the chase open rather than plastering over the hole/piping and just placing the board over the top once the pipe work has been clipped in? Would this contravene any building regs or cause any long term problems?

    Can't think of any reason, assuming that the cladding is sound across whatever gap you leave.
