Best approach to get Wifi to my new metal-sided barn?

Hi Folks,

     I have a R7000 connected to my ADSL modem, and it works fine for my house, but I just put up a metal-sided barn about 220' from my house, and the signal inside is very weak unless I leave one of the overhead doors open (and even then it is only decent on the side of the barn nearer the R7000).

     Is there a weatherproof repeater that anyone can recommend? Is that the best approach?

(I use the 5GHz band in the house because the new microwave interferes with the 2.4GHz band, if that is relevant.)
TIA,
-Jeremy

Maybe not from Netgear, unless you are prepared to invest in something like this:

 

RBS50Y | Orbi | NETGEAR

 

It probably needs a bunch of other kit, though.

 

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
