Sub Panel

True that. Fortunantly my garage is a little different. I have a Gas heating unit, and another of other things. But if it was just a shed that would be funny and a lot of work.

Sub Panel

Not really a lot of work, the 60 amp disconnect is simply a disconnect at the outbuilding rated for 60 amps. Your feeder could be a 30 amp breaker at the house, but at the other end the disconnect for the structure must be rated for at least 60 amps. This is not to say that the disconnect can't be bigger; IE: if you are running a 100 amp service to another building/garage/shed etc.
