cheers and have a great day.
Actually, you may still be able to add circuits although it will require a bit of creativity. First, see if you can find a place to put in a 120v 30A branch panel (240v could be used if that is all you can find), preferably close to the original panel. You will also need to have easy access to the panel. It will need to have only two slots to accomodate up to three new circuits if you use half pole breakers. Also make sure you can feed directly to the breaker buss bar(s) instead of through a breaker).
If you are able to find a place for the new panel, replace the existing 30/15A breaker with a 30/30A breaker. Route the original 15A circuit that was connected to the original 30/15A breaker to a 15A breaker in the new panel. If the wire will not reach the new panel without splicing, see if another circuit on the original panel will reach the new panel. If so, just swap them out. If none of them will reach, you will have to install a small junction box (a shallow outlet box will work; just use a solid cover on it) near the original panel and use it to splice a longer length of wire to the shorter one.
Wire a cable from the new 30A half pole breaker in the original panel to the new panel and connect it to the incoming lugs in the new panel. If the panel is designed for 240v, inside the panel, splice the hot lead on the new 30A cable feeding into the new panel to two shorter leads and and connect those two leads to the lot lugs in the panel (putting more than one wire in a circuit breaker or other lug is considered to be a no no in most codes). Add breakers as needed to accommodate your new circuits.
