so the set up I have now I have about $400 in.
Thanks sir. That doesnt sound to bad considering the money it would cost to run a wire to this outbuilding. I think cost would be about the same if you wired it right. The work would be a whole lot easier. (nothing fun about renting a crappy trencher and my 102lb self trying to muscle it around)

The barn already has plenty of juice to run anything I want. Air compressor or whatever. So I really dont need another outdoor building with lots of power.
