I am having power run to a detached shop. I had 2 electrician’s come out to give me quotes but both had different requirements for permits. There currently is no other power, one told me I needed to have an outside light, 1 outlet, inside light (inside man door) and a 3-way light for the stairs.
The other electrician says being it is an outbuilding, these don't have any requirements?
Not sure which to believe, without calling the state inspector. Any clarification would be great.
In these parts the "other electrician" who is talking about outbuildings would be incorrect. In these parts inspectors care not about stipulations like that, but it may differ. I would go with the more competent electrician.
