Simply Build It

Hi johnny13,
Don't like to sound like spoil sport or knock your knowledge of electrical installation but it all involves part p work, so if you are not qualified as part p sparky. You need to inform building controls to install new circuits and outside lighting, Then you will be inspected and expected to be able to design, install and test this equipment, they will charge you or instead get Part P qualified electrician in to do the job.
Sorry and best of luck
