So, summarizing: It seems like I've got three obvious paths forward:

1. Get a modern AP with pluggable antennas.

2. Get a high gain antenna to add to #1. Don't really want directional
antennas unless I can have two on an AP, one omni for the house, one
pointing at the shop.

3. If that doesn't work, get something like the Ubiquiti UniFi 3 AP
   pack for $200 and run controller software on a server.

Unfortunately, #1&2 are a different technological direction than #3.
But I probably want #3, really.
