However you wire armored/romex make sure you run 12/2 or 12/3 for your 110V applications and 10/2 for your 220V applications, but you will need to make sure the distance of the run does not exceed to capacity of the wire. If you separate your lighting runs from your outlets just run 14/2 or 14/3 for them. This is what did. Remember your 12/3 or 14/3 (110V applications) means that you will have two hot wires, plan your breaker box capacity properly.

If you read through other electrical forum questions you will see that I am a big fan of the “Wiring Simplified” book.

Hope this helps, if you have any other questions feel free to PM me. I wired my own shop from soup to nuts and learned a lot in the process..
