Electric to shed
Figured I would run my initial thoughts on this by the electricians here to get feedback.
I have a 14x20 barn type shed located within 20 ft of the garage. It is on 4x6 pressure treated runners, and they rest on a concrete pad, which is 1 foot wider all around than the shed.
I want to install:
3 interior lights, 60w cf
2 exterior dusk/dawn lights 75-150w
1 20A GFCI receptacle
2 15A receptacles(out of reach for security cams)
1 20A GFCI exterior receptacle
The recepts are for hand power tools once in a while. Not going to be set up as a workshop at this point.
My initial thought is to add a 60amp breaker to the main panel in the garage.(Both panels are 200A with plenty of extra spaces.) Run those wires(2 hot, 1 neutral, 1 ground) to a small subpanel inside the shed.(Keeping neutral and grounds separate and not bonded) And then just feed the 12ga and 14ga romex as needed from there.
I would need to run the wire from the 60amp feeder breaker out the top of the main panel, in metal conduit, and up onto the ceiling about a foot or so from the wall. Then all the way across the 3 car garage ceiling and down the wall for the 3rd garage bay.
Attic access is not good because of all the items stored up there currently.
The feed line would exit the house about 15 inches from ground level though brick. At which point I need to do some sort of exterior conduit, gray plastic or liquidtite. It would go into the clay soil and run over to the concrete pad for the shed.
Total run from panel to shed entry point = 57 feet
Total underground distance = 21 feet
Any suggestions or corrections as to how to best do this?
