    I have had a new shed erected and would like advise on what cable I should run to it from my house.
    I plan on fitting around 3 double sockets and two strip lights.
    The distance from main fuse board to the shed is approx 25Mtrs.
    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    For your current needs you only need 2.5mm2 three core SWA cable (brown blue green/yellow).
    To future proof yourself, if it were min, I'd do it with 6mm2 three core SWA cable.
    For the relatively small amount extra you'll pay for the cable, you'll never be kicking yourself that you didn't think ahead ... like I'm doing now!

    Makes sense to future proof things,

    From where would you plan to connect this new power feed to your man cave?
