Hi :hello2:
Can you fit a recessed gas box into a 12" solid brick wall?

I'm in need of moving the gas meter and I have no choice but to move it to an external wall, either on the outside or inside.

The location inside would look unsightly as the only location it can go is in a corner of the living room where the tv and entertainment goes.

The other option which is preferred is outside. The problem is that the front of the property, mid terrace, is directly onto a footpath so a surface or semi concealed box would be no good.

As far as I can see on tinternet, all instructions show for a conventional wall with cavity.

So question is, can you put a recessed gas box into a solid wall? If you can, what would be the guidelines by the way of damp proof membrane? Is it needed?

I have a quote of £520 to have the work done but I have to either let them put it inside or, if outside, fit the box myself.

Any advice appreciated.
