    "Depends on your existing fuse board set up. How long the armoured cable needs to be supplying cabin, and what you'd like in the cabin electrically."

    "If your consumer unit / fuseboard inside your property already has RCD protection this will help. If the garden lighting is close to the house then it will be fairly straightforward. It will probably be necessary to use 'Steel wired armoured cable' which is normaly buried in the ground. If you can dig the trench then you will save a lot of money. You definitely do not want to pay an Electrician to dig a trench. If the garden lighting is close to the house then you are probably looking at 1 or 2 days Labour. I would really need more details before I could say"
