    Will the city/state allow you to do your own electrical or do you need to have a "certified" electrician perform the work?

      As I understand it presently, all electrical work has to be permitted. As such it gets inspected by the county once things are done. I "believe" the work can be done be either an electrician or the home owner, it just has to meet code.

      My thoughts at the moment are to have a company come out and run the feed to the shop, I'm thinking a 100 A sub panel. I don't know at this point if the feed to the house has enough capacity to handle the 200 A service to the house, plus the 100 A sub panel to the shop, or a separate line needs to be run directly to the shop. That's something I just don't want to mess with.

      As far as running circuits inside the shop, I may do that myself .... my neighbor has offered his services (is an electrician) to help out. Most of those runs will be surface mounted ..... pole barn construction is not ideal for running wiring inside the walls.

        Sounds like your process is the same as Missouri's was back in the mid 80's. Getting 100A to his shop while maintaining the existing 200A to the house required him to upgrade his service to "commercial" or otherwise go with two meters. As you allude to this entailed a larger feed from the street and a larger meter box on the side of the house.

        I spent a lot of that summer back from college wiring the house and the shop. Good times but it saves a lot of $$$

        I do wish I had that large, dedicated shop now though

            Good Test! Looking forward to seeing the shop get populated now that the floor is in. I guess there is still electrical and insulation, but one could infer that you are drafting a floor plan for the layout?

              Once again my former Imperial informants come through... far more reliable than ex-KGB.

              The main door appears to be installed, though whether it is fully operational is yet to be determined...

              Of course, for security and fast access, a functional "man door" is a mandatory requirement, not an optional accessory...

              Naturally, it is only fair that we address your concerns about the state of interior completion- while electricals are yet to be initiated, insulate and the ceiling appear to have been completed on time...

                          A birdie tweeting in my ear says that Monday they should finish up the rest of the building detail work- gutters and some other stuff. Then, I think electricals will be Steve’s next challenge.

                            Was just thinking, that with the windows, Steve can also get a window AC to keep the shop cool with the swamp weather we get over here in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia). With the insulation in place it can stay cool and get a heater for the winter.

                            I'm anxiously waiting to see what the sign will look like for the shop too. Will Steve go metal, wood, combo... Decisions, decisions, decisions...
