Electricity to shop
This may be a stupid question, but here it goes. When I bought my house, I also bought the lot next door that the previous homeowner owned. He had built a shop on the extra lot. His wife got sick so he wasn't able to completely finish it. He had temporarily run an extension cord to the shop for power. I would like to put electricity out there so that it can be used as a shop rather than a junk house. Would an electrician be able to get power from the panel at my house, or would I have to get the electric company to run a line to the building and have a separate panel in the shop?
