thoughts on this job .........

Got a job , its a very small cupboard under stairs , that is getting converted into the worlds smallest toilet , problem is that the fuse board(none RCD), main fuse and meter is all about 1 ft above were the new sink is going :eek: , the board is going to be boxed in .. the job don't involve moving the board but has me concerned , all the builder wants is a light , which will be no more than 4 ft from the sink , and an extractor fan , again 2- 3 ft max from the sink ..

what are you lads thoughts on the board , will put the fan and light on RDC protected spur .

Cheers

How are they going to fix the basin to the wall below the CU without drilling through a cable?

How far away from the door is the CU? You could always run a supply from the CU to a switch outside installed in steel conduit and then switch-wire and neutral back into the cupboard. Connect that into an LV transformer for a low-voltage light, and into a transformer with timer for a low-voltage fan.

What if someone goes in there after having a good skin full, gets confused, opens the wrong flap and takes a pee in the wrong thing!
