Wiring to carport
I hope someone can verify my thinking on running a line to my carport. I am going by what I have read on here and other forums.
I plan to install a 20 amp GFCI breaker. Then run 12/2 UF-B from the panel through attic, into conduit attached to the outside of the house. Bury the wire (not in conduit) to the carport. Once at the carport, run the wire through more conduit to a double gang box with a switch and a double outlet. From the box, run the wire to 2- 4 feet fluorescent shop lights (through conduit). The complete length from panel to box in carport is approx. 60 feet.
Now, this carport is of the homemade variety (by previous owner) and is enclosed on 2 sides. I plan to run the wire to the side that is enclosed. Although it is partially enclosed, I do plan to use a weatherproof cover for the switch and outlet.
Have I missed anything? The only questions I have (for now) are 1) how deep do I need to bury the 12/2, and 2) do I need to run the conduit just to ground surface or do I need to run it into the ground an inch or two? I don't think I have missed anything. Any suggestions, tips, or revisions to my thinking is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
