It sounds as though all buildings have electric outlets served by the same transformer. If that's true you might try some of the wireless intercoms that plug in to an outlet & communicate over the power wiring. That's probably the simplest solution but it won"t be perfect. Expect to hear some constant hum & other noise when electrical devices turn on or off. Be sure to buy the units some place where they can be easily returned if not satisfactory. You might need to try different outlets in each building to find the ones that work the best. One advantage of these intercoms is that the steel siding has no effect.

Another option might be CB radios in each building with mobile antennas mounted in a good location inside the buildings. At that close range the radios would probably work OK through the steel siding and you would not likely get much interference from the rest of the world.

I had thought of using those. Finding which phase the garage is on is a minor problem. I have also thought of GMRS with external antennas. I have those already for when I am in the woods. I also have amateur radio stations in the computer room and shop but the wife is not licensed.

Amateur licenses are pretty easy to get these days with no Morse code requirements. Or how about an unlicensed QRP rig with a good outside antenna?

It doesn't matter which leg, just the same transformer.

I have 4 of this type. They are 3 channel. And sometimes do give trouble, when they do you can just switch channels.
