These are all great ideas. Thank you everyone!!
The 50a sub-panel sounds like the way to go. I just don t know how easy of a time I d have selling it to my wife.

I work with a lot of electricians, and I might be able to offset the cost of labor with beer. Otherwise, I should probably get some proper estimates.

A single 220v would be nice, but it seems like it might be wasted effort. I could just run an extension cord from the dryer until I get a sub-panel figured out. It s not ideal, but it s better than nothing.

I can’t imagine the total cost would be more than $200. And your sparky may be willing to set the panel and leave the downstream wiring to you so he doesn’t have to wrestle with the dilemma of GFCI vs. standard outlets.
