I doubt he’s running 200 amp to the living area though. Biggest draw would be a full size electric stove (not sure if that’s in Tim’s plans). Next maybe a hot water heater, then simply outlets and lighting.

Correct. I have a 150 amp panel in the living area. I am planning on mini splits for the HVAC, electric stove and water heater (not tankless)

Got two 20 amp outlet circuits pulled into the box. There are a total of 5 in the shop.

Then two 50 amp 240v circuits
One 20 amp 240v circuit for a radial arm saw. Just not sure on location.
One 30 amp 240v circuit for the air compressor

Two 20 amp 120v lighting circuits

Not sure which panel to run these out of....
150 amp feeder for phase converter
150 amp feeder for living space

I had terrible luck with mini splits,hope your have better luck.
Put a whole row of recepticles in for battery chargers,you will never have enough.
By your living room chair put a bunch of recepts close by,you will never have enough.
I have light switches and fan switches and all that stuff right by my living room chair,call me lazy but its very convenient to turn lights on and off from your recliner.
I have a small desk by my recliner where i charge my phone and laptop and flash lights etc,very handy.

Those receptacles with the USB charge ports are very handy. That’s about all I put in anymore. A bit pricy but damn nice to be able to charge from anywhere.

Using the loader for what I bouggt it for. Cleaning up and clearing brush.

Feel like this area of my property I'll be forever finding trash.

If you keep mixing the wood with the dirt it’ll keep making trash. Or dig a big enough hole and bury it all.

Electrical update.

Conduit and wire pulled for a welder outlet by the door and conduit and wire pulled for 120v outlets and some future light switches. One will power a flood light on the end of the building.
