100 Amps- What the heck are you going to put in there?? Electric heat and washer/ dryer and hot water heater??!?!
**You didn't mention Ground or neutral rods Cat.. As it's a separate panel it needs them installed there. (minimum 6' apart I believe) (Jersey might show up and set us straight if not!) Other than that it looks OK though I would have kept the wire in conduit right up to the panel so something doesn't penetrate those babies and cause issues. (keep things long/loose in the panel) Another note is to put oxide inhibitor on the aluminum wire connections.. It keeps your connections as conductive and protects you and your equipment. Just a morning crumpet or two for ya to chew on..
100 amps, 60 amps, $10 price difference between the two.......I do have a few woodworking tools running around. Never know, I might need to fire them all up at once.
One 8' (5/8") ground rod outside the shed. I got by with one rod, but barely. The inspector said it tested out at about 25 ohms. I thought two was going to be necessary with my sand soil. But the rod must be deep enough to be hitting some moisture.
On the inhibitor, you should of seen the looks I got when I asked for that stuff at Menards. I think at one point there was 3 employees looking around. Finally a forklift operator got on the radio and said they don't carry it. Had to swipe some from an electrician at my church.
