Simply Build It

s1bgs,
Yes you can but you will need RCD protection and the shed is a notifiable location so comes under Part P. You should get BC incolved or use a certified and registered installer.

If your wiring it yourself you will need to notify building controls, as this comes under part p of building regulations the installation will need to comply to BS7671 and as you are adding on to exsisting circuits a minor works certificate will be needed too.

hi, it depends on which way the light is wired, if supply goes to sw. then on to light then run from sw. if supply goes to light first then loops to sw. then extend from light.
However to extend ANY wiring out side main house is covered by building regs 'Part-p' & is a 'controlled service' see 'projects section'

thanx for ur reply. the shed is more an out-building attached to the end of kitchen in old victorian hse and not seperate as in wooden shed in gdn (still need to go outside to get to it). socket would be on RCD as kitchen ring seperate and RCD`d. just need to drill through 9 ` wall for cable.
