I have had a log cabin built in my garden. It is all wood, that is the frame is pine with external wood cladding and the internal walls are tongue and groove pine cladding. Between the vertial wooden supports is Rockwool insulation.
I have been told to fit the surface mounted socket boxes due to a fire risk if an internal plasterboard-type socket box was used. Can anyone confirm this? I was told there are special fire-proof socket boxes if I wanted to make the sockets flush with the wall but these are so expensive.
My question is can I use the plasterboard/drywall socket boxes and are they safe? I would like to use them for both light switches and power sockets.
Thanks in advance.
