Garage/outdoor outlets
One more question, I'm planning to run a new subpanel to my garage... I'm only putting 1 circuit in for now, mostly because I just don't have easy access to the walls because of materials I'm storing for other projects. Eventually I'll put in more circuits, but for now I want a few outlets, the garage door openner and lights. I also don't have any outside outlets at all.

Any reason that this 1 circuit in the garage would have to have seperate circuits for any of this? I believe I'm under 2008 NEC at this point, so it'd all be tamper-proof GFCI. Just need to know since I'm filling out my permit to turn in tommorrow and fees are based in part on number of circuits.

I prefer to keep the lighting separate from the receptacle circuits but it is not required. It does add more flexibility when larger tools are used. You could wire this as 2 circuits and pigtail them into one at the subpanel until later.
