Can I Run Electricity to My VersaTube Building? YES, You Can!

by VersaTube Marketing on July 12, 2019

In your search for the perfect building, you’ve discovered VersaTube—the fully customizable, DIY building kit that can become anything your heart desires. You’ve found the perfect structure, and now you wonder: Can I run electricity to my building?

Absolutely! Any enclosed structure from VersaTube lends itself well to becoming the perfect location for your electrical needs. Whether you need electrical run to your barn or need workshop task lighting for your tools, the options are extensive for ways to meet your power needs.

How Do I Get Started?

If you want to run electricity to your VersaTube building, there are a few things you will need to think about. The best time to decide on how to run electrical wiring to your structure is previous to ordering your building. Talk to one of our experienced sales engineers before you get started. Having a plan beforehand is key to achieving your needs in the most cost efficient way. Your local hardware store should carry the electrical wiring, outlets, and tools that you need to get the job done.

Next, determine where your building will be located. If cost is a factor, find a location that is close to an existing utility hook up. After you visit your local municipality for your building permit and building code information, think through all electrical needs you might have:

  • Will you require an HVAC system?

  • Will you require electrical, surround sound, or wall mounted lighting?

  • Will you install a drop ceiling or drywall finishes?

  • Do you need any undermount outlets?

  • Will there be any exterior lighting?

  • Will you need any electrical in the ceiling for power garage doors or overhead lighting?

  • Does the use of your structure require any fire prevention (sprinkler system)?

Do I Need Help?

Electrical work is not necessarily a DIY job if you are a novice. There’s no shame in hiring a contractor or asking for help from a qualified electrician. Your electrical will need to be inspected as part of the permit process for your building. Hiring an expert will save you time and money in the end, if this is your first time working with electrical wiring.

Choose the kit of your choice or design your own custom building with one of our exceptional engineers. Then add all of the finishing electrical  touches, both inside and outside, to make your building as user-friendly as possible.
