the house i just got has a large detatched garage (about 30x40?) with a loft with about the same square footage over it. none of it has electricity. the loft has the begining of wires run to a breaker box in the garage (no power to it), and the garage it's self just has extension cords all around it with one long one the previous owners plugged into a outlet outside the main house. for wharever reason, none of the garage wiring goes to that breaker box.
i'd like use that box for at least a basic few 110 (120?) outlets and lights around the garage with maybe some 220 (or is it 240?) in a spot or two for welding later if i get a chance to get a decent mig welder. the loft can all be 110 (120?) as i have no plans to have more than basic lights and small appliances. at the most maybe a large tv and fridge, and a gas heater that the last owners left and said they planned to put in (i guess the pilot and/or themostat would use 110?).
i believe i could do it, i've done some basic light switch stuff, car electronics, and some aircraft wiring in the military (guard). i just need a good reference so i know what to do and if it's up to code or legal or whatever.
thanks for any help.
