An extension cord and power strip isn't the right way to run power permanently. It is a perfectly safe and inexpensive way to do try it out temporarily.


Why won't the shed work? My understanding is that you want an external office space to get away from the distractions inside your house. It might work, or it might not.

External distractions:

Your brother and mother might just come out to the shed to visit and distract you.

Internal distractions.

You will still have YouTube and ecomodder in the shed. You may find you aren't actually any more productive in the shed than in your room in the house. Do you want to find that out after you have spent thousands to convert the shed?

Will you like working in the shed?

You may find you don't actually like working away by yourself. This year I started working from home 1 day a week. It is nice to avoid my 2 hour commute but it is also lonely sitting by myself in an empty house.
