hello service,
from your info id put nothing less than a 100 amp 20 space sub panel in this will supply u with enough for what u r adding now and still leave u room 4 future. the 100 amp will require a 100 amp 2 pole breaker installled in existing panel with #3 thhn used 4 the 2 hots and nutural and a #6 for the ground. this is if u r useing conduit. if u plain on useing SE cabel u will need to drive a ground rod at the sub and ground it useing #6. heres a money saveing tip check with your local building authority and c if they will allow u to use #4 thhn on a 100 amp sub here it is allowed in a residance. if u need any more help feel free to post or e-mail me.
