here is the situation. im building a house with a detached garage. i built the garage before the house as tool storage while i built house. rather than install a tempoarary, the PC allowed me to put my service entrance and panel(200A) on the garage.( the garage actually attaches to house with short tunnel) so my question is now that i'm ready for a panel in the house, how should i do it. as a subpanel? i'd like to keep the current service panel in the garage also.that was part of the point. i will only use a few of the breaker spots though so there will be several open. i've included a picture to give a visual. i'd like to hear some ideas.

here is pic...

Subpanel setup is definitely an option, Just remeber to keep the neutral and grounds separated at the sub. Discuss the necessity of GRound Rods with your local inspector. Being an attatched building May be a Judgement call.
