I only buy Monster Cable extension cords for this very reason. Now I can't afford electricity - no fire hazard!

I don't see what the problem is, in fact I was thinking of getting a second shed.

bearded clamorer: Any hobo worth his salt knows you don't pay more than $100 a month for a shed that doesn't have a minimum of a 12 gauge extension cord, and a GFCI receptacle located IN THE SHED.

Some of these unscrupulous shedlords will try to give you a 14, or even a 16 gauge cord, with no ground fault protection, and tell you it's OK to run your hot plate, your blow dryer, and your phone charger at the same time.

/It's high time these people were called out.


They're the worst kind!

Damn it, Canada, if you're going to live in a garden shed, at least live in a wooden one. Metal conducts heat far too quickly; in sub-freezing temperatures, the inside of a metal shed can actually be colder than the outdoors.

RogermcAllen: UsikFark: Farktastic: I see subby knows fark all about electricity...

They make 50' extension cords. Half a dozen indoor 6-footers chained together should be fine. There's even an 8 outlet surge protector at the end to power the space heater and Coleman griddle.

10/10 A+

I hope the kids at home are reading this post and taking notes.


Just make sure it is all plugged into a wall outlet that is protected by a Federal Pacific load center. Also knob and tube wiring would add a nice touch.

They weren't homeless until the city kicked them out of their rental. It's clearly better that they wander the street than live in sub par housing.
