    Hi

    Make a list of every piece of electrical equipment to be used in the house area and garden, supplied from the main box.

    All Lights
    Cooker
    Water heater
    Fridge
    Tv
    Etc etc

    Then you have to apply the diversity factors.

    You can find all gen in the IEE regs

    Criteria on mains cable is
    Length of run, amps, and permitted voltage drop for you area.

    Regards

    Mike
