This is part of one of the larger jobs already posted on this site.
The customer wanted the door bell installed on the front of the brick, I tried to talk them into putting the door bell in the doorway which would have made the job easier, but they insisted in a specific location for the door phone. Unfortunately the location where they wanted the door phone installed was directly on the other side of a support column of which I did not have a long enough bit to get thru (and potentially there was steel behind the masonry)
The customer suggested that I channel out the concrete between the bricks to run the wires, but I felt that would have left the job sloppy, and would have actually been more work than to come up with this solution. About 2 feet to the right of where the door phone was to be installed the wall was thin enough do drill thru the masonry, So I had to channel thru the concrete to get the wire to where it needed to be.
|Drilled hole across brick towards where wire exits for channel.|
|3x Cat 5 wires (for 3 door phones) run thru channel behind brick.|
|Hole on right is where wire enters building, to left is where wire exist thru channel behind brick.|
|Another angle of the channel for door phone wiring.|
EDIT Here it is, finally. The door bell mounted by the front door.
