Doing a kitchen. Signed off on rough, walls are closed, its plastered and
painted. Now the owner wants to move the sink to a different location in
counter. If sink is moved an electrical outlet is there and the switch for
the pig. I know that one cannot have wiring on wall above the sink. I know
that a box cannot be buried. Is there any solution that would be legal and
look decent that anyone knows of?
No if you have the drywall guy there, ripping out a piece of wall and doing
this right is a trivial task.
My wife is a builder and she thinks nothing of cutting out whatever is
necessary to do things right. It is no more work to fix a big hole than a small
one and it is easier to hide the joints if you work to a corner or the edge of
a sheet. A good painter is going to want to paint to a corner too. If you have
a break in the wall a slight difference in color will not show.
