Running power to shed
It's fairly simple. You'll need to run conduit or bury UF wire; either will require digging a trench from wherever the power will be supplied from.
I recommend picking up an intro to home wiring book and doing it yourself. An electrician usually charges $70-90 an hour, plus the cost of materials. UF wire is somewhat expensive. It'll also take awhile to dig the ditch.
The wire will need to be on a breaker in the main panel, then run it into a sub-panel in the shed. Remember to isolate the ground from the neutral. Also, make sure the outlets are gfci protected.
