Hello, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer; my name is ***** ***** I will help you today.25mm is enough for a back box for a socket outlet, so 37.5mm is plenty. If you're thinking of any high power appliances, like a shower with a dedicated circuit, then you might well need a deeper box, but you can always use a surface mount pattress._____If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.
Hi James - I was having lunch, so away from me desk, sorry.
Online is fine. Please ignore the phone call offer. I will be here until 1pm and then out until about 5pm.
Your question about socket outlets - is this a weatherproof building?
Moving on to the installation, and cable gauge, are you creating a new circuit from the consumer unit?
More questions!Do you know what kind of circuit the existing socket is connected to?What is the rating of the breaker?What will be the total load of the appliances and tools you use in the shed?
The things that determines the course of the design are:
1. Whether the existing circuit is a radial or a ring;
2. The gauge of the cable already installed to the outhouses.
