Wiring Log Cabin

Postby borderfox » Sun Jul 15, 2007 10:44 am

I want to put a cabin in the back garden and use it as an additional living space. I can run electric from the fuse box near the front door of the house - through the roof space to the cabin at the back. It will need to run tv/pc/fridge/lighting/probably an electic heater or two. Also, i will need to power a shower somehow. I know that the electricity supply i have is only rated to power one shower (there are already two in the house - with a switch to prevent them both running simultaneously) - so not sure what I should do to solve this?? Any suggestions?

One other query. Is there any issue in running electric cable down through the middle
