I wouldn't have either externally on my house......and no I'm not a snob just wouldn't want a fat cable on show with loads of cleats showing.

Personally if I couldn't convince client to bite bullet and mess up kitchen I'd silly price job and if accepted I'd do it in conduit or if possible dig trench and hide swa?

None of us have (except the OP) seen the job though. The external run might be only for a few feet. The exterior of the house might be hideous and unkempt. The run might be in a side passage that is virtually never used. Solutions and their costs can be provided and the client can then decide.

6mm t+e run through 25mm conduit on the external section would be simplest. Don't really like t and e in conduit, but no point adding unnecessary joints for sake of it, and twin will be easier to route on the internal sections.

I tend to agree with the above...

Domestic install , only (easiest) route is external , depending on the oven/hob I would go for 4mm in 20mm pvc conduit or 6mm in 25mm pvc conduit.
It ain’t perfect but nothing in life ever is.

Take the 10mm bonding from main water pipe under sink and use as a draw for 6mm then re instate it’s helped me out a couple of times

No one has suggested MICC yet. 2L4 is amply rated, suitable for outdoor use and has an overall diameter of only 9.4mm

Basically asking can I run the cable from the board inside, through the wall clip the cable to the outside then bring it back in where the hob location is and connect up. So basically the cooker feed with run outside then back in

Despite all the confusing replies I think the simple answer is;
YES.
But give consideration to the type of wiring/method you in tend to use!

Definitely don’t go for sy, its not compliant with any bs and shouldn’t be used for that application..
Perhaps, Go for heavy gauge 25mm conduit, the containment can also be used for lighting or outdoor power

Is it a concrete floor?
Sometimes a customer just needs telling point blank......if you want something doing you got to be prepared for mess ie chases or ugly mech protection on show...... we're Sparky's not magicians.
This isn't a sparky, frightening.

I have done exactly that on a recent job where new owners were buying a dual fuel range, conduit was the best option for that particular job.

Whatever convention may tell you, it is right to question.
Does this work?
Does this comply?
Do it! It's not magic...

How do you turn off notifications I’m trying to enjoy a nice bottle of wine and an episode of Orville and keep being pestered with this tedious thread that the original poster has long forgotten about
