Electrical advice

    I am living in an estate and have built a blocked garden room in my garden. We plan to use this space to relax and somewhere for the kids to spend some time in the evenings with friends and so on.

    In there we would like to have lights and sockets to power fridges, freezers and in the future maybe a washing machine and dryer.

    I have buried a 6sq SWA cable from the fuse board in the main house to the garden room (approx 25m). Is this cable sufficient for our needs? I have spoken to a few electricians and each seems to have a different opinion.

    I have heard the power supply to the house would possibly need to be upgraded to the household to allow for the extra demands and that this can be a costly affair. Some advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
