Incoming Power

We have 4 supplies on 3 different phases coming to us

  • 6 Amp Lighting (P2)
  • 16 Amp Water Heater (P1)
  • 32 Amp Shower (P2)
  • 32 Amp Ring (P3)

The cables run to the first floor and should be tapable there to continue to a Consumer unit in the dirty workshop, the 16 could be changed for a 32. though this would require replacement of the cable.

Potentially we could change the breaker upstairs to 40A and use a 32A breaker in our box which would remove the risk of tripping the breaker upstairs by distributed load.

I have a JB for the wall On the first floor though no terminals as jey I also have one length og 6mm cable for to provide a power for to the consumer unit below, it is run but not connected

Consumer Unit

We have a schnider Easy9 Distribution box in the hall next to the dirty workshop

Board and beginning of conduit


This will be done by 50mmx50mm Conduit you can see the plan for distribution below, Iain did some good work mounting the first section of trunking and Consumer unit, you can also see the board for work to be done.



see Lighting

The main light will be fed from a 6A Breaker, this has not bee done yet, as there is a supply form above which is seperate from out Consumer unit as yet.

Main Power Distributon

We need to see what we need, I think this should be done in 2.5mm cable with a 20A breaker for each area or by requirement, we will have to consider upstream it we require more load.

Water Heater

In bathroom and shower, can we get rid of the shower?


A Ventilation Fan and ducting


Supply for each room.

Future Desires

Is there anything we want in the future that should be considered early on?
