If you are not looking to bring in a professional, and you are not up to changing around any of your home's current wiring or breakers, then using an extension cord from another circuit sounds like it might be your best bet. My only suggestion is to spend the money up front and buy the longest, heaviest gauge cord you can find. There are contractor grade cords that are made with 14 or even 12 gauge wire. The 12 gauge will safely handle your needs over the distance of the cord. Pulling a 15-20 amp load through 50 or 100 feet of cable will cause your extension to heat up quite a bit if it is undersized.
