In your house or attached garage, no disconnect is required in the subpanel.

All detached buildings require a disconnect that will disconnect the ungrounded conductors (hots), whether it is a single circuit or a subpanel.

So this brings up a good question. Where does one find these "codes"? I know of the NEC (which is nearly impossible for me to find info in b/c it is so long, dense, and technical) but they you also have state and local codes. Is there a consolidated place to find such things?
I'm not sure how consistent they are from region to region - in Washington State, the various cities and counties handle permitting, but unless the city has additional restrictions, the electrical codes are passed to a specific State department ... and I can go to them with questions (and to pull a resident homeowner permit) ... I know Oregon does it a little different, so I'd suggest Googling your area's permit process, and someplace in the process should be a human you can ask the question of ... perhaps someone with more experience on this Forum has a better suggestion?
