Postby fob » Wed Dec 10, 2008 1:50 am


iam planning on putting 2 lghts and a double socket in my two sheds out side with two switches for the lights. iam just wondering should i come of one of my double socket in the utillity room into a junction box and then two wires with a fused spur on each wire off the juction box one for the light and double socket & one light for the other shed. Just correct me if iam wrong also i have done this up stairs in the bathroom i came of the double socket in the bedroom into a juction box and of two wires out of the juction box into two fused spurs one for the bathroom heater & one for the extractor fan. I dont know if i would be overloding the Circuit or is this even right what i done in the first place in the bathroom.

presume from comments you have not registered the bathroom work with LA Building Control as bathrooms come under building regs for any electrical work! what you have done does not seem to comply with wiring regs either.
Any electrical work done outside the main house eg sheds is a 'controlled service' under LABC part-p and must be either registered before doing the work having paid their inspection fee or be done by a registered electrical firm who can self certify the work without the fee,
To do otherwise has been a Criminal Offence for over 3 years, even in your own home, your proposed work would contravene IEE wiring regs, and all work must have an electrical certificate issued or future property sale will be jepodised also,
