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
