Re: New Outdoor GFCI Outlet
As Jack points out, the garage should already be GFI protected. If this is the case, then continuing the line out and installing a standard receptacle would be appropriate. The way to find out is to check both the main service and all other wet locations for either a GFI breaker (main panel ) or a GFI outlet.
GFI's are generally located in a garage, in bathrooms, in kitchens, or at exterior outlets. A single GFI can be responsible for all other wet locations, so don't assume that because you see a standard receptacle that it's not GFI protected. Conversely, don't assume that a standard receptacle is automatically protected, regardless of the presence of other GFI devices in the home. The only way to be sure is to inspect all outlets and circuits and test the various outlets which should be protected, i.e. any location prone to moisture or near a water source.
