In this episode: I install cabling, sockets and lights to a Shed.


Installation of a 20A supply to a new rear garden shed. A new BSEN61008 main switch amendment 3 consumer unit was installed by the DNO service head to supply the new shed. Inside the shed 4 metal clad double sockets were installed via PVC copex and a lighting circuit was spurred off of the 20A supply using a 3A switched fused spur.

CW glands have additional compression gland to give IP rating to gland but only if SWA is inside the gland and no SWA is on show.. we only use CW Type glands.

Excellent job. ๐Ÿ‘

Jon Donnelly says:

I went for the same flexi conduit. Fantastic job. Bare cable clipped to walls does my head in.

Where abouts are you based, mate, and how far are you prepared to travel for work? You seem to be a real honest guy, and I need power in my garage? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
Just checked where Corsham is; forget my question, even I wouldnโ€™t travel 2 hours to a job. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Ryan Easterlow says:

Hi mate if you donโ€™t mind me asking how much did you charge for this ? If you donโ€™t want to say I fully understand.

Jay Vids says:

My distribution board got wet from a burst pipe in my shed the rcd and all the switches had water running out of them I wiped it dry with a rag …I've been told I have to have the lot replaced because the damage can't be seen inside the trip switches is this right

Matt says:

I know this vid is getting on a bit now so probably nobody will read this comment, but anyway…

I recently did a shed using flexible conduit just as you have here, but I did find that where it entered sockets from the side there was a bit of an issue with the adaptors/nuts getting in the way of my socket/switch screws when I put the fronts on. Do you have any tricks for this besides shortening the already short screws?

P.S. pick up some self-tapping flange head screws, they only seem to come in short lengths sadly, but where only a short screw is needed such as most of what you're putting up in that shed (everything except the SWA cleats) the large head on them saves messing around with washers.

Gerry Walsh says:

What about a wet damp shed.

Klberts1234 says:

Nice vid them shiplap sheds move quite a bit. Would be nice to see the conduit after the winter/ summer etc

Noel Walsh says:

Do you not think it's a small bit more professional fitting a 4/6/8mod enclosure as apose to some spurs? Maybe an RCD? Tidy job, not that much more just to give it the X factor. Magnetech Solid Solutions ltd (good info btw hats off)

Hi, I'm a new subscriber and I'm after some advice pal. I'm constructing a shed 25m away from my home and need to get power into it. I can't afford a sparky to wire it up yet. So I'm wondering what extention cord I should use, I'm planning on welding in the shed so worried about voltage drop. Any help would be appreciated.

Steve Ellis says:

Where did you get the clipps from what the name order reference?????????

Stephen Waterman says:

Euro needs to get updated wiring…. They are closer to India than the states, or CA.
We hide the wires, have a single panel with 32+ breakers all in one place, we have GFCi and Arc Fault built in.
And those Outlets are just silly. The 220v is cool and more efficant but silly for tv or laptop.

He has 3 conduits from the ceiling to the boxes. He could have had a box up top and then a single conduit going down to the outlets.

Edgar Brito says:
