I installed a Consumer Unit several years ago with the following (18-module split-load) layout:-
32A Ring 1
32A Ring 2
32A Ring 3
32A Shower
16A Immersion
16A Link to outside shed (without its own CU)
Not RCD-protected:
40A Link to another outside building with own Garage CU
40A Cooker
16A Radial circuit to freezer and Stanley boiler
6A Lighting circuit 1
6A Lighting circuit 2
6A Lighting circuit 3
6A Lighting circuit 4
Spare slot
Does anyone see anything wrong with that?

bit more than the average CU i must say, but as long as you did it right and protected all circuits correctly shouldnt be a problem( :confused: i think!)

...........apart from a large leccy bill! :D :LOL:

bit more info required though i think, rating of CU?

it does seem a bit overloaded!

how bigs your house!!!!!!
The CU came with a 100A Isolator, 63A RCD.
The house is not that big, but long and with 5 foot thick stone walls which make the routes rather tricky - hence so many circuits.
