run outdoor conduit question


Hey im new here so pardon me for any errors but i'm trying to run 12/2 conduit from my basement(there is an unused dedicated 20amp circuit for washer/ dryer) to my detached garage(50' from the basement receptacle) and i plan on running the conduit strapped alongside the house without having to dig due to concrete driveway. I don't know which conduit to use and plan on putting an outdoor receptacle on the way to the garage as well...the garage will ultimately have only one receptacle and a light. Can someone please tell me if this sounds do-able.

If your going to run the feeds along side of your house you should run it in PVC.

Laundry area also requires a dedicated 20a circuit
That circuit can't feed anything outside of the laundry area

Conduit is the tube like pipe that individual conductors are installed in. Cables are commonly labeled 12-2.

Type NM-B cable cannot be used on the exterior of the house, even if in conduit.
