Electrical Question about: GFCI Wiring
Received from Hank a Homeowner in Buhl, Idaho
Question: I am about to finish building a 32′ x 48′ garage/shop and nearly ready to start the electrical wiring. I have been told that there are differences, according to the NEC, between wiring a garage or a shop. Possibly?? at least one GFCI protected circuit in a garage for a ref. or freezer? I don’t plan to have either, nor a washer or dryer. This will be used as a normal garage to house regularly used vehicles, also to pull farm machinery in for minor welding and mechanical repairs. And some small woodworking projects.
Will this be a garage or shop and what are the differences in wiring (if any) according to the NEC?
Thank You for any reply.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
