I disconnected the tap that was feeding the detached garage, the panel is full, so now she wants a quote on restoring power to her garage. The conductors were #10 The building is about 60 ft from panel

My call today was for counter plugs not working.
their is 4 kitchen counter plugs all one one circuit plus the dishwasher connected. 14 guage wire on a 20 amp breaker.for now i changed the breaker to 15 amp
