You can buy them from bunings
Just have to work out costs vs getting another electrician in.

If it’s an external wall and you have a tiled roof, they can do it from outside.

Building Plans acquired without permission

This, seems... strange? Why do you care about the plans? Unless you host the local north Korean embassy the only issue is the fence?

Definitely overkill. Drains are for overflow, not a burst pipe damage mitigation strategy. That’s what insurance is for.

Fibreglass Insulation Around Electrical Cables

I stand corrected. Under “Health and safety tips” it says...
Electrical wiring must be appropriately sized or it may overheat when covered by insulation. Have it inspected by a licensed electrician.

There was no snark : -) The nathers software or the gov’s own insulation guidance doesn’t mention anything like that except around downlights.

The National Construction Code not fit for purpose

The NCC is the overarching guide that refers you to standards. Imagine if they’re freely available. No more “that’s how it’s always been done” no more “it’s to standard”…

It would also help if the standards were free too.

I was researching this exact thing last night. The correct answer is... it depends. Where you live and new or existing are probably the biggest factors in choice.

1. Nope not allowed on vacant residential land. Permit is for 6 months where you are allowed to park.
