Running Electricity to a Detached Building, Shed, Garage, or Barn

Running Electricity to a Detached BuildingRunning electricity to a detached building, such as a shed, garage, or barn, is a great way to add usable space and value to your home. A detached building is just a storage space without electricity. With electricity, the possibilities are endless. Your detached garage can be used to house and work on your cars or it could be converted into an apartment or even a man cave. With the addition of the usable space, your home will only increase in value, but just how much value? Does a detached building have a good return on investment (ROI)?

According to Home Addition Plus, “if the detached building is designed to serve multiple purposes, and is aesthetically attractive, you have a good chance of getting your return on investment and maybe even more.” The key phrase here is “serve multiple purposes.” In order for this to be the case, you need electricity. And while some homeowners may consider a do-it-yourself wiring job, it is best to leave the electrical work to the pros. Not only will this ensure the job is done correctly and to code, but it will ensure your safety, as well.

Running Electricity to a Detached Building, Shed, Garage, or Barn

TriStar Electric can help you with your shed, garage or other detached building. We can provide a full wiring job for the building, and then make sure electricity from the main power source in the house is connected to the outlying building. When we are finished, you will have a fully functional work or living space.

Our electricians are highly trained and have years of field experience. The wiring will be expertly installed and any permits that have to be filed will be taken care of by our team at TriStar. We take great steps to ensure wires are properly buried and hidden from sight. In addition we wire to meet local code requirements.
