Just an idea for you. When I built my garage I got a book that outlined ever step of the wiring process. Based on that information I drew up a plan to wire the garage and took it to a former electrician of 10 years experience that worked at a major building supply. He said the plan I had was great and would pass any local inspection. After installing all of the electrical, I had the city inspectors come out to look at it before I finished putting the interior walls up, and they passed it. I knew I was going to use a welder and a large compressor so I used wire that was a little larger than the code called for. Follow this procedure and you can expect to save $1500 to $2000 on a total wiring job with no problems.
