im going to be wiring a generator powered hunting shack / house. Its not very big maybe 25 x 15. its going to include an outdoor eating area, and an indoor eating area, indoor bar, indoor lights, and indoor plugs. Its only source of power will be a remote mounted generator.

Im figuring on setting a sub panel in the shack, fed by the generator. I wanted to set up a 12 volt system so when the generator was off, we would still have indoor and outdoor lights. Is there any specific way you guys would go about this? Im thinking the easiest would just set up a few separate lights on there own 12v system, with a deep cell battery, with some sort of charging or tending system on it. Or is there some type of switcher, with inverter, that can back feed the existing lighting system when the generator isnt on? i have never designed anything like this.

how would you guys handle this?
