3WAY Switch options

The MWBC in that case is considered one circuit.


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

3WAY Switch options

To make the lights work you will have to give up one circuit.Bring the two cables into the switch boxes at both locations. Bring the feed into the switch box in the house.

At the three way in the house, Connect the hot from the power feed to the common screw and the black power feed cable tot he shed. Connect the power feed white tot he shed feed white. Run power to the shed on one of the cables. Use the second cable to bring the travellers to the shed.

At the shed connect the incoming travellers to the switch. Connect the common of the switch to the power going to the light. Use the neutral from the power feed cable to complete the light circuit.
Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
