Electric panel Upgrade????

What would the difference in cost be between a 200 amp and 250 amp upgrade

32 pos main panel and a 6-8 position sub panel ???

Iv'e never seen a 250 amp service. There are 225 amp panels but not 225 amp residential services.
Why bother with a 30 space panel with a sub when a 40 space 200 amp panel is standard?

regardless of whether a subpanel in a remote location is logical, I would not put in less than a 40 space 200A main. The couple of dollars you save could bite you in the butt later.
