Detached Garage 60A subpanel Construction Sequence Question


I am going to be embarking on a "homesteading" project in the spring and am perplexed by the sequencing of the electrical panel service. The project will have a detached garage/in-law apt and a main house. My plan is to get the garage to dry-in and complete so I can have a workshop (and dwelling) with which to work on the main house. I know that the temporary service box will be there for the framing stage but I am curious as to how a pro might approach having a 60A subpanel in a detached garage before the main 100A service exists in the main house. The 2 structures will be close in proximity so I plan to run the leader from the main house to the subpanel once the house is at ready for electrical rough-in... Just confused as to what the best practice construction sequence would be. I've learned a lot from the helpful pro's here... I mostly do plumbing and timber framing so this isn't my domain,

Thanks in advance.

You will need to power from the temporary until the permanent service is set.
