I wish to do the following: change an incandescent bulb to a fluorescent light, using a plug-in for the new light.
Add an outlet on the same wall as the original one, about 8' apart. I want to change the original outlet to a GFI outlet since this is in my garage. The garage is not finished, so drilling through the studs is easy.
I would like another fluorescent light over my workbench (where the new outlet will be). Could this be run off the original light? I could run the wire in the attic to within 3' of where I want the light. By again using a plug the placement problem would be solved.
I do not have to go into the panel for any of this.
I would very much like two additional outlets, one on a different (finished) wall and one outside. I'm not sure I would be able to do those.
Anyway, for the two lights and the one outlet, do I need a permit?
