Even someone as loving and patient as me gets tired of holding DIYer's hands through jobs they are not knowledgeable enough to do.
If you need "a step-by-step guide" to installing a sub-panel maybe it's a job better left to a pro.
I don't ask my accountant for a a step-by-step guide to doing my taxes. SHE is the pro, I let her do them.
If I am wrong about you sorry, there is a lot of good (and some not so good) information out there. You just need to figure out which is which.
I thought I learned from the message boards that no ground rod was needed if there was no piping that connected the structures. My bad.You still need a grounding electrode system. unless of course you only ran 1 circuit out to the structure.
Heh heh....good one. When I hear "loving and patient" I automatically think of you. You might want to take a break from the DIY boards and go to your happy place.Even someone as loving and patient as me gets tired of holding DIYer's hands through jobs they are not knowledgeable enough to do.
BTW, I think the guy could handle the job.

There are lots of DIYers out there who are perfectly capable of following clear directions, and those who like to know the code which resulted in those directions deserve extra credit, IMHO. This forum could be a valuable resource to provide that guidance.
Having said that, even I am appalled at some of the ignorance displayed in the questions asked...
