Final wiring of gen shed

So I 'permanently' wired in the gas gen shed, so that a strong wire would be in place to deal with the further distance to the house.  I also put in a switch so that potential charge is not going OUT the wire.  Here's the switch:

and to make the wire, I found a 100' outdoor extension cord with a broken male end and cut it in half and used one half for the positive and one half for the negative, tripling the copper the charges travel on.  The house and the gen each have a ground, so I didn't need to run that in the wire.  It makes for a beefy cord:

Door project, in process

So, of course it wasn't a simple thing.  I ended up cutting down and finding lots of rebar.  So, there was a lot of sledge hammer work....
