Hi there. I need help installing a two door IKEA cabinet into my bathroom. I would do it myself but the top half covers plaster and the bottom half covers tile and I don't have the tools/plugs to complete the job (see pic - it'll go right over top of existing built-in). I'll be needing you to supply the appropriate plaster plugs and tools to do the job (inc a drill bit that'll neatly get through tiling).

Finally are you happy to help lifting the cabinet to determine hole placement and subsequently to attach cabinet to the wall? I am happy to direct what needs doing but the job will be significantly easier with a small involvement of two sets of hands. I'll put in an offer on the basis that you can assist in this way.
To get through the tiles I have a set of tungsten carbide tipped high carbon steel drill bits which, when used at low rotation speed with water cooling, will carefully and accurately drill the tiles without cracking them. Once the tiles are drilled a masonry bit can be used once more and a plastic anchor plug also used again.

I've installed showerscreens over the edge of baths which often requires similar drilling into tiles.
Hi Drew - I'd be interested in doing this job and I am available on most Tuesdays, Thursdays (preferred) and Fridays from 7pm.

In terms of necessary tools I have a variable speed drill, a number of masonry and tungsten carbide tipped tile drill bits and suitable plastic anchor plugs of various sizes as well as a stud and electrical wire detector to ensure we don't knock out the power in the process.
i am thinking that there is concrete behind the plaster and that i use plugs and long screws.

Hi Wally.

The new cabinet is about double the size of the inbuilt one and the screw holes will need to go two at the top (into the plaster) and two at the bottom (into the tile). So no, none of the screws could go into the existing frame.

I'm free weeknights from 7pm and weekends. $65 total is fine if all of the above is possible using your tools/plugs etc.
