Phew! got the estimate for running water/electricity from the house to the barn (50 feet +/-) $2500!!! I have electrical experience, my husband was a plumber for a few years, we just thought we would delegate and hire someone to dig us in. For $2500, they would dig down 7 ft (live in MN) and throw a pipe and electric lines in, bury them, and attach pipe to pressure tank and the other end to hydrant. He said they have to bust through the concrete floor in the basement.
Is this something me and my old man could tackle? I haven't more than the foggiest idea of what to do, so any information would be helpful. I just can't afford $2500 now, we use a hose now (free) and cart water in daily in the winter (free but a pain).
