If we have to go to the meter, it will be a bit more work and a longer run. I don’t know the rules etc on gas in particular well enough, so I hope to find someone local for that.

I also want to look at options for heating. A gas space heater would likely be the simplest. I’m hoping to insulate under the concrete, so I’m tempted to look at in floor radiant heat. Not sure what sort of options I have for a heat source for that. I also don’t have the plans to run water out to the shop, so would need to be a self contained system once up and running.
