    Everyone's dream, a big shed to build and store. How are you getting power down to the shed, seems a long run.

    Just running wire underground from the house inside a pipe, it's about 300 feet (91 meters).
    It is more of a man cave than a shed. Electric, internet, cable TV, water, fridge, microwave, and hopefully someday a half bathroom. 300 feet is a long walk. LOL
    No, West Chester was east of the old house. You know the saying, 'go west young man', well I'm an old man, so I only went about 7 miles west. :D Now we are 1 mile west of the huge metropolis called Shandon, Ohio.
