My steel hangar is about 50 feet away and there is cement and asphalt over the ground between the house and the hangar so to dig down and install a CAT 5 cable run out to the hangar is not a fun option.
 
Are there any WIFI extender options available to get WIFI out to the hangar?

  I presume you have AC power in the hangar. I'm also
  hoping that the feeder comes off a breaker in your
  house.  If so, you might consider a product like
  this:

  Asoka is not the only supplier of such devices.
  These are power line connected cat5 transceivers.
  Put one in the house with a jumper to your
  router and the second in the hangar.

  I've been using these things around here
  for several years . . . saved me a lot
  of time/effort stringing wire. I've got
  a couple of surplus devices I could
  send you to experiment with.

  But if your hangar doesn't get ac power from
  the house distribution panel . . . all bets
  are off.

50 feet is nothing to today's routers, if you have windows facing each other. If you don't, and Bob's power line technique won't work for you, look at 'Ubiquiti nano station'. I haven't used them myself, but when I was looking for a solution to a similar problem, they were highly recommended by some 'linux geeks' who earn their living setting up and maintaining networks. You need a pair, which will cost around $100. Power & ethernet to the one on your house, and power/ethernet at the hangar.

You can also do it with a generic router, a generic access point (most routers can be configured as access points), and another router in the hangar, but setup can be a pain.
