First, I would like to say thank you in advance for advice and direction.
I currently have a storage shed located 30' from the house which does not have power running to it. My initial plan was to run install an additional breaker then route the wire through my attic and through the rear exterior wall. Unfortunately our driveway is poured such that it meets the foundation beneath the breaker panel. This prevents me from taking an entirely external route with the wire.
What is the best way to route the wire through an exterior wall; down through the wall, or through the soffit and attach conduit to the brick?
If you are running only one cable and your panel is on the wall you want to penetrate, why not drill a hole through the panel to the outside. Then install a weather tight box or LB and run conduit from there all the way to the shed?
