Hi, as shed is not part of house you cannot legally do any electrical work to it/in it, unless first paying building control fees before starting.
Alternativelyl use a registered leckie who can self certify it for you.
see top of page PROJECTS scroll down to Building control Part P.
DIY electrics is in many cases no longer allowed (5 YEARS NOW & people still don't understand)
Firstly, it is a brick cavity work shop and not a shed.
like i said, i am not connecting up. Anyway, I have already wired it and the ring main from help on another forum (really simple stuff). Sparky is coming tomorrow to connect up. now I only have to pay him an hour!
doesn't matter what its made from if its outside main house part p applies,
'sparky' coming tomorrow is a brave man/ fool if he connects your wiring.
Even a part p registered leckie is not allowed to do 3rd party notification so he will have to sign to say he has done all the work himself & then he is lying to his competant person scheme provider and Building control.
glad you think its 'all simple stuff' & if so why did you need to ask especially if you are going to ignore the advice freely given?
do as sparx says , its easy until someone gets hurt ,. the installer has to do all the work or he can not confidently test and sign off the work , i wouldnt anyway
if you get a good guy in he will advise on what he thinks is the best way of wiring the shed based on his onsevrations and skilll , this of course may make you think he is taking you for a ride but ultimately he is responsable and should only do the work to a standard and method which he is comfortable doing , i say he , should say he or she lots of great female sparks out there
