I just moved into a small home (~1150sf) that currently has 150 amp service. The disconnect is outside by the meter (pictured). The meter is attached to the side of the carport, which I'm about to convert into a garage.
The sub panel is inside in the middle of the house (pictured). Though I have some room if I replace some of the breakers with doubles, she's pretty full.
I need significant power in the new garage. Here are the circuits I'd like to install in the new garage. Some of the items can be run on the same receptacle and few, if any, of the 220v tools will be run simultaneously:
- 120v for A/C
- 30a, 220v for table saw
- 30a, 220v for plasma cutter
- 60a, 220v for welder
- (8) 120v receptacles for various woodworking tools
In every other house I've lived in, I've had room in my panel and have wired the circuits I've needed myself.
I guess I can run a sub panel to the garage from the sub in the house and then wire up the circuits, but since the disconnect is about 5' from the garage, I was wondering if there are other options.
Any advice? Thanks in advance.
