This is really the wrong tool for the job you are trying to do. It isn't intended for permanent installs or serving entire households. There are certainly ways of linking the house to the shop (two easy ones are a pair of Ubiquity Pico outdoor radios or using broadband over powerline units as long as the shop is fed from the same mains transformer as the house) but then you need yet another client radio to talk to the MiFi. I don't suppose just carrying the MiFi to the shop when you need it down there is an option ?
You MIGHT get there with one (or two) of the simple WiFi "range extenders", but 100 yards through 2 outside walls is really pushing it.
If you are determined to do this let me know and I will map out the whole thing.
The MiFi probably charges through the USB port, so leaving it connected to a computer or using any one of the inexpensive mains to USB charger plugs should keep the charge up.
