Got my flue in with access hatch all good .

Unfortunately the fitted wardrobe will literally end slap bang in the middle of the hatch 🙄

What are the regs on this ?

Hatch size I mean ? . Presumably it’s just so a carbon monoxide test could be done in the flue ?

Can I wardrobe across the opening ? ( removing the hatch door of course.  But access for a monoxide test still do able .

Can't you put noggins across and keep the hatch clear? Only a small wardrobe - does it even need the central support?

That supports the end of the wardrobe 😕

It’s part of 4 all bolted together . Can’t run it the other way either .

Not sure of the point of the hatch anyway . It’s a straight run flue so nothing serviceable in it ….

Can't you put a small hatch to the right, under where you have had your pocket squirrel out (again)?

Mind you - when I asked my BCO about Part J flue regs before starting my chimney  (I haven't done one before as all my previous stuff was flats and commercial) he admitted that 'he didn't have a clue' and suggestd that I ask the brickie.

 

If I were you I would just bury it behind the wardrobe and forget about it.

You could get the BCO signoff before the wardrobes go in.

Could do …….. but he might guess what’s happening as I have 9 flat pack IKEA wardrobes on the floor 😂😁🙄
