Adding external extensions/lighting

Postby ldoodle » Wed Mar 28, 2007 12:45 pm


I have added extension sockets/light siwtches and fixings to a ring main (and properly as well!) on internal wiring, but not done external wiring.

Basically I want to put a weather-proof shed in the back garden for an extra fridge, freezer and tumble dryer, as well as a double weather-proof socket. I also want to add 4 or 5 walk-over lights into the decking ( ... index.html).

What is the best way to do this?

If it would be best to add a CU in the shed I will seek expert installation.
