    I'm new to the forum so I will apologize in advance for any indiscretions. I have a property that has an existing garage with the power run directly to it. I need to run power to a cabin that has been started. The cabin is about 100 ' away from the garage. Can run the electric from the garage to the cabin, as if I were running from a house to a garage? Or will I need to reroute the power to the cabin and then back to the garage? Hopefully this is a simple question and I am just overthinking it... Thanks

    Actually it is not that simple. How much of a load do you anticipate at the cabin (amperage). Also, what is the load at the garage and how far is the garage from the house? Is the secondary panel at the garages source by a feed from the main panelboard at the house or by some other method?
