I have a light circuit coming from my house to a pigen shed, i want to add two floodlights from the main source then add a switch to turn lights in loft on, how do i do this. basically i have my mains switch, then two floodlights then want to add a switch and 3 rose pendant lights. I want to be able to turn floodlights on then go outside to loft and use switch to turn on the 3 pendant rose lights. is this possible??? and what do i need to buy?

That's quite a large DIY project so we need some photo's of you consumer unit, the existing lights and cable.
I already have a swith connected to my electric box and lights to the pigeon loft, what iam looking to do is add two floodlights to this circuit, but i want to be able to use the switch i have now to turn the floodlights on and then on the same line have another switch to turn on the 3 lights in the pigeon loft. I want to be able to have the floodlights going and be able to turn on/off the lights in the pigeon loft. I dont need to turn the pigeon loft lights on by themselves and have flood lights off.
