Here is my dilemma:
We have an old granary that we are fixing up little by little. It has been cleaned out and now houses chickens. It has been great, as the birds have two large indoor sections to live in when the weather is bad, with a trap door to the outside if they want to go out.
Here is my problem. There is no power to this building and Winter is coming.
The the closest power source, the garage, about 200 ft away, across the yard (garden) and a bit of fenced in field (no worries about running it over, etc.).
I am looking at running power out there EVENTUALLY but can't afford an electrician at this time. Can I double up on heavy duty extension cords?
All I need to run is a heat lamp and a watering can that has a heating coil built in so the water doesn't freeze. We do not need lights at this time.
It has been suggested that I just buy the wire so I can reuse it when I do run power out there.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
