Pfft, clearly too many people following the book here.
Chase the cement out in a concertina effect to where you need it, re-mortar and paint. Angle grinder and mortar gun would make it a couple of hours work. A bit like repointing a wall but you've hidden a cable.
FabulousThen again, he was also the guy who was complained that his new powerbank stopped working after 3 days. He'd received it fully charged and plugged into his phone and that was that. Never re-charged it. Evidently he thought it was some sort of infinite power device. I had to talk him out of leaving a snotty review online.
Paintable trunking is pretty grim IMO.Not good practice to have wires running in wiggly lines in a wall. Plus I'm not sure about cutting a backbox into a single skin, non plastered wall. Surface mount is the way to go. If you want to make it more subtle use some small paintable trunking so it will partly blend in with the wall.
That’s not a bad about. But it may be a little much. It’s for one of these guys:Paintable trunking is pretty grim IMO.
Embrace the look and get some metal piping. In London, it'll cost you double for exposed wiring and surface mount backboxes. Especially if they are government approved, BSI metal ones lol.
Yes. That’s a great idea. And I think probably the solution.Where’s the wire going to come from?
Could you run it up the corner (there’s another wire there already) and then just bury it in the mortar for the horizontal run to the middle of the wall?
You may struggle to get it done 'legit' as I doubt it's up to any sort of official code. Handy man... Possibly. No more than an hour or two work apart from paint.Yes. That’s a great idea. And I think probably the solution.
I think this is the sort of thing that I would really mess up myself however. Need to find some quotes in the uk. No idea how much it should cost.

Make a feature of it. Galvanised trunking and an exposed galvanised socket will look super cool. I mean, it's an exposed painted brick wall so roll with the punches.
Comes in black too. Could look really smart if you tie it with other bits and pieces. I have bits from the John Lewis Calia range which would tie in a treat - and if you don't want to spend that much, people make to order loads of knock-offs on Etsy for reasonable £.Well the socket will be covered by the thing I'm putting up. Let me look up galvanised trunking. I'd need it elsewhere too I think. though I do like the industrial feel.
