Drilling for Gas!

We hit a major snag during the installation of our new gas hob - the gas supply pipe in place has too small a diameter so we have had to design an alternative route to the one under the floor. This entailed drilling through 700mm of solid rock wall with a one inch diameter bit. It took us several hours, an exhausting experience. But the final push through the plaster into the kitchen was one of those experiences that you don't forget!
