Default My New Garage

I am close to getting the shell done and was looking for ideas on what to complete before I finish the ceiling. I will wiring for lights and running a 1 1/4" air line ring header. Is there anything I am missing before drywall goes on the ceiling?

The most obvious would be a sound roof before installing any drywall...especially with those rain clouds shown in the picture.

No roof would make it easier to wash a car while still in the garage.

Damn, I didn't realize I had so much power!

Seriously, this is a great looking garage. What are your plans with it?

Parking cars and/or toys? Auto builds? Man Cave? Dad's pad when Mom's mad?

It's mostly to house my toys but I want it to be functional as well. Thats why I am looking for ideas from people who have already went through the experience.

I see it is a "stand alone" building. Are you going to have power to it?

If so, make sure you have more than adequate electric plugs, air line taps and if you are going to have a work bench, make sure you have good bracing between the studs in that area for mounting a work bench.

havasu. It will have 100 amp 240 volt 32 circuit Square D QO panel. Loads of receptacles 30 200 watt equivalent CFL lights a Toilet, Urial, Sink and Shower. Ohh and a beer fridge.

Thanks for the tip on the work bench I wasn't going to do that but I will now. However it won't come as fast as the roof did. LOL. How big on the bracing 2x12's between the studs?

OK, you have officially surpassed all requirements of manhood by installing a urinal in the garage!

Yep, 2 x 12's are the recommending bracing for a workbench. They also work great for the shower area for handicap shower railing. (You always need to think ahead. these creature comforts only costs pennies now, but can save thousands later!)
