So, time to get serious with all of this and build a workshop.
I considered using part of the garage which is attached to the house. This would make wiring etc much easier, but sadly there is no door between the inside of the house and the inside of the garage and I don't fancy the idea is having to open the big garage door each time I want to use the workshop. So I followed the traditional UK path of building a shed in the garden. When I say building, the shed itself is coming part built and will be finished on site.
Shed installed today 8th June 2018 Love it!
I need to then do the following:
Insulate sides, ceiling and floor and line the sides and ceiling with ply
Started this 8th, 9th and 10th June 2018
Still at it on 16th 17th and am getting seriusly bored with it.
Install small consumer unit, sockets lighting and small heater
CS bought (MK), six MK metalclad sockets, black 20mm conduit and saddles
CS installed 16th June 2018
All conduit and sockets and switches now in place 17th June 2018
Run amoured cable from the garage to the shed
6mm SWA cable ordered and arrived
Arrange for an electrician to connect the whole lot up
Jim been to check up and seems happy with the plan and has provided a quote. He will terminate and connect up the SWA cable and test my installation and if all is well certify it all. Keeps the insurance company happy.
