I'm going to run power from the load center in my house out to my new barn/garage/workshop. I'll have lights/garage door
opener for garage and power for normal power tools (table saw, band saw, sander, etc), the blower for my propane heater
and perhaps a window AC.
The distance is 125 feet along a path that curves a total of about 90 degrees (with a radius of 20 feet or so.) That is, the wall of
the barn is about 90 degrees to the wall of the house.
As I see it, I have two options:
1) Bury 3 wire + ground UF cable in a trench at least 24" down. Question: is it practical to get UF cable in a wire size needed
for this? Would that be #2, #4 or #6?
2) Bury 3 THHN wires + ground in conduit at least 6" down. Question: What is the minimum radius that PVC (gray)conduit of
the size needed can be bent? Is it practical to do one long pull along this radius or will I just have to go with a pull box and a 90
degree bend in the middle? (this will make the run longer).
Appreciate your thoughts...
